CNI Conversations was last held on April 15; the archived audio recording of that discussion is now available at http://conversations.cni.org/ (to subscribe to the audio feed add http://conversations.cni.org/feed to iTunes, or any podcatcher). The April session included a recap of the CNI Spring 2010 Membership Meeting by CNI Executive Director Clifford Lynch and Associate Director Joan Lippincott. Cliff also discussed the recent announcement by the Library of Congress to archive the Twitter database, an event on sustainable digital preservation held in Washington, DC on April 1st, and the e-journals summits convened by the National Academies, among other topics. Questions included the state of e-books with the advent of the iPad.
