I’m heading out to Indianapolis to do a keynote on gaming at the library, on Monday August 30, 2010 at CYPD! Slides will be unveiled after the event, but handouts for attendees, and a sneak preview of gaming related links, are available now.

UPDATE: thanks to Indiana Library Federation for hosting me at their conference as the Monday Keynote Speaker! Slides, links and handouts follow.
