interesting people in the library world

I've just returned from a conference of european health librarian in Helsinki (hurrah!!) and was really impressed at the Dutch librarians who are using web2.0 - personal homepages, of the like of pageflakes, igoogle and netvibes - to deliver tailored services to their users, and themselves.

eg their talk

Space up your library: social networks and libraries
A.J.P. van den Brekel (Guus) (The Netherlands)

How to use Web 2.0 technologies in you library instructions
Dorine Kieft-Wondergem (The Netherlands)

is this stuff that is widely known in Cambridge? it does seem a very interesting way to go. (see for my own small foray into the new world)
