Thing 15: Attending, presenting at and organising seminars, conferences and other eventsNot so much to say about conference and attending. Simply, the few time I went to a conference I was astonished about the people I found. So, keep in mind (when you go or organise one) that the best part of a conference will be the buffet or the free time. And that's the time to network, don't be shy, remember thing 2 :) (Sure, there's also boring conference with boring people. In that case, feel free to tweet about it. Maybe you can help someone to avoid making the same mistake)
I love speak to people. Currently not for conference but for training course of our software. I've just started, so have a lot to learn, but hope that in the future will be place for conferences (please just help me to find the time to write a paper)
For the organisation thing, now I'm really busy, but someday....who knows...
Thing 16: Advocacy, speaking up for the profession and getting publishedNot sure what can I say about advocacy. Sometimes, working especially for public libraries, I found myself thinking about advocacy for librarians. I mean, there's a lot of good persons inside public libraries, but not as many librarians as I expect. For my job, I must talk with people that think they own the books and rather than make an interlibrary loan they close the library.
For now, my advocacy practice will be: increase the maximum number of loanable documents ("yes, patron we trust you"), help libraries build community (i'm reading it). Starting from little things is an hope to reach the objective.
As Enrico stated, get published means "document everytime, show everything" (of your work :P). We are trying to do our best in this way, but it's not so simple.
