Web 2.0 Expo: what's a librarian doing there?

If I may interrupt summaries of the Web 2.0 Expo briefly:

Regular readers (and colleagues) may wonder - what does all this have to do with librarianship? In my opinion this is all directly related to librarianship. We are a business like any other (the differences between non-profit and profit are disappearing fast). Everything at the Expo can be applied to us, to the way we work and relate to the people around us. Especially because I feel my employer could use more information on marketing, I chose to go to many of those sessions. Hopefully my reports will be influential to other librarians (as well as anyone browsing the web for the subjects or people I've covered).
