2. Techno Expo at Gold Coast Libraries
More information: Techno Expo Flyer
9am – 7pm tomorrow (11 September 2008) the Broadbeach Branch Library is running a session to introduce their community to “all sorts of gadgets, tools and concepts” . They have workshops, presentation, information displays and a chance to book a 20 minute slot with a gadget guru. Topics include blogging, privacy and managing online presence, getting the most from your MP3 and digital photography. I love the way they have sprinkled the timetable with a couple of introductory sessions to the library’s online resources.
