Carson Block

 CARSON BLOCK has lead and loved library technology efforts for more than 20 years.  He’s been called a “Geek who speaks English” and occasionally compared to Ferris Bueller and Calvin (and Hobbes).  Carson is dead serious about the essential and positive community impacts of libraries and focuses his consulting practice on helping libraries increase their capacity to serve patrons. He has served in leadership positions in ALA ASCLA, ColoradoPLA and others, and evangelizes libraries to SXSW Interactive and other tech communities.  Carson is the author of Managing Library Technology: A LITA Guide.
