Stephen Abram highlighted SLA’s new Innovation Laboratories for members. This area has a wide variety technologies like Twitter, Second Life, Wikis for members to play and learn with. With this new sandbox area they’re promoting 23 Things campaign. Basically the idea is to spend 15 minutes a day for 9 weeks playing in the sandbox in a structured way. By the end of those 9 weeks you should be able to say you learned 23 things. They even played a catchy theme song for the campaign.

SLA is making use of Twitter at its annual conference. For those of you new to Twitter, it’s a microblog cross platform service that  allows users to post  a 140 character message via the web, mobile web, SMS, IM, andmore.

The SLA Conference has its own twitter page where people can go to view updates posted by SLA conference attendees. To post an update to the page members simply begin their message with #sla2008. With Twitter users can important conference updates, fact check a speaker, or give feedback on an event all in real time.

I just reopened my Twitter account and will be posting real time updates in addition to posts here. Feel free to follow me at my twitter page.
