Jon Udell's Interviews With Innovators :: Art Rhyno

Originally posted on Jon Udell's Interviews With Innovators on April 27, 2007.

Art Rhyno is a systems librarian at the University of Windsor, in Ontario, Canada. He's a self-proclaimed library geek with a passion for innovative ways to make library information systems more useful.

In this conversation Jon Udell and Rhyno discuss the themes that emerged from the recent code4lib conference. They also talk about Rhyno's ongoing interest in making connections between systems that live on the desktop and systems that live in the cloud.

Rhyno and his wife are also the owners of the Essex Free Press, a weekly community newspaper that's been published since 1896. They reflect on the mission of local newspapers, and on how emerging Internet technologies can support and extend that mission.
