That scruffy gentleman to the left is Jason Griffey, the Head of Library Information Technology at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. He's busy with lots of things these days:


Library Blogging, by Jason and Karen A Coombs, is a book on all aspects of blogging for libraries from Linworth Press. It is available for order now at Amazon and other fine retailers.


Jason writes online in a few places. His primary residence is Pattern Recognition, his personal and professional blog, which has been active since 2003. He is an administrator and author for LITABlog, and this year will be a columnist for the ALA TechSource blog. He is the current co-chair of the LITA Interest Group BIGWIG, and is one of the organizers of the BIGWIG Social Software Showcase. He the 2008-2010 Chair for the LITA Program Planning Committee.


At his place of work, he is working hard on a new building project...a brand new $48 million dollar academic library for the UTC campus. We're in the planning stages, and should break ground in just about a year. Jason put together a wiki for the project, and the entire process is being done as transparently as possible.


At Computers in Libraries and Internet Librarian, Jason is one of the faculty for the Academic Library 2.0 preconference. He also feels very funny writing in the third person, but thought it would be interesting anyway. He spends his free time reading, playing games, and preparing for the inevitable zombie uprising.


You can find Jason online nearly everywhere, but especially Flickr, del.icio.us, Twitter, blip.tv, ClaimID, LibraryThing, Last.fm, Pandora, LinkedIn, Slideshare, and probably other places I'm not thinking of. If you want to just get everything all at once, here's an RSS of Jason's lifestream, or you can follow him on Friendfeed.
