Not to be outdone, the California Library Association has announced Henry Rollins will be the keynote speaker at their annual conference in November:

We’re delighted to announce that the keynote speaker for the 2013 California Library Association in Long Beach will be Henry Rollins. Henry is a perfect speaker for our conference theme of “Let’s Make Some Noise!” His thoughtful, insightful, and entertaining commentary on social issues can be found across multiple media.

Originally best known as the singer for the seminal Southern California punk rock band Black Flag from 1981 to 1986, and the Rollins Band in the decade that followed, he has also released over a dozen spoken word albums in which he shares his commentary on a host of social and political topics. He has also published fifteen books of journals, poetry, autobiography, and photography, including 1992’s Black Coffee Blues, 1994’s Get in the Van: On the Road with Black Flag, and most recently, 2011’s Occupants, a collection of photographs from around the world paired with essays about the world condition, which wired.com called “an impressive collection built entirely out of Rollins’ desire to expose readers to corners of the world they may otherwise never see.”

Thanks to Open Culture for the Henry Rollins announcement and a tip of the hat to Boing Boing for the video.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
