In no particular order, here are some of the tweets that I thought hit on the big themes of LITA Forum 2009–and some that were funny enough not to leave out. They're very lightly edited at times.

(The future of libraries is IT) jaimebc: At what point will ideas be serious, not "young"? lisacarlucci "dont get caught thinking technology is the answer- its the innovative use of tech thats the answer"- @mgoldner (Likely the most-tweeted quote of the conference came out of a last-minute Lightning Talk by OCLC's Matt Goldner) andrewkpace #litaforum heard at the Forum: "best Forum ever…best *conference* ever…"
