IASSIST 2011 conference song lyrics

By walterg | June 6, 2011

Sung to the tune of Bryan Adam’s “Summer of ‘69” :

We all came to Vancouver in spring 2-0-1-1 IASSISTers gather together this is gonna be fun!

Day long Admin meeting Ann skyped in for Constitutional change and we kept it all to the schedule Now that was really strange

oh, and when the Canucks won, the cheering seemed to last forever and that really set the scene for the best IASSIST ever These are the best days of IASISST


so many questions that you just can’t answer when metadata isn’t standardized in Japan/Europe/US and Australia we’re building apps to wrangle DDI

We love a plenary speaker who gets there’s no one in the room who won’t understand bias and stochastic error ‘cuz Canuck politicians sure don’t!

On the presidential 10K Bill proved that he could run forever As he takes up the reign Down the Hill Bill, it’s now or never Yours will be the best days of IASSIST


On Thursday our data warrior Chuck gave a plenary on the Main Street of infrastructure where will the social sciences be?

Lynda looks much taller on Twitter she and others kept us in the know “Moderately protected” is like “a little bit pregnant” Tweeters were the star of the show

This boat actually left the pier and the booze began to flow San and her two Walters hit the floor All the data people know that these are the best days of IASSIST


And so it’s been decided Next year we’ll be in DC then in Cologne the year after planned ahead for two out of three!

Next week when we look back Vancouver seemed to last forever And if we had the chance we know we’d always want to be there It was the best IASSIST of all


Many thanks to our talented musical director (and past President) Melanie Wright, and everyone else who sang and listened; truly the best IASSIST conference song ever!
