John, your talk last night was so moving and inspiring. A perfect coda to conclude the Tech Talk series with class and with soul. Thank you!
John is the Eagle Scout of technology: trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, cheerful, thrifty, and all the others! He is on top of all the emerging trends and ready to help profs to implement them in their classrooms.

I joined the Ewing Township Web Committee late after it was established. John was the Committee Chair person and found him helpful in bringing me up to speed as to the goals of the group. He facilitated meetings in a professional manner and offer technical assistance to me whenever asked of him. I would not hesitate to join another group John was a part of.

I recently had the good fortune to take a course that John taught at the Princeton Public Library. I was impressed with John’s knowledge base and the way he facilitated the class. He was well-prepared with a comprehensive agenda, but was also flexible, allowing the class to be shaped by the needs and questions of the group. He did an excellent job of managing a class with individuals at different skill levels. I would highly recommend John as an instructor – Miriam Libove
Thanks to John William LeMasney for a great talk tonight at the Princeton PC Users Group Meeting and for getting me addicted to Spotify!
I had the pleasure of meeting John for the first time when he was giving a presentation on the importance of professional networking tools at Rider University; we were both students in the Organizational Leadership MA program. I walked away from his presentation with a better understanding of how to utilize LinkedIn for my professional needs. He did a great job of demonstrating the site & other tools. John is engaging & energetic. Since then I reach out to John periodically with technical question and he is always quick to reply with his opinion & support. John has a passion for technology and helping others which is clear in everything he does, from working on his communities’ website, to his blogs and personal support. John would excel in any position for which he applies.

John was a good person to work with. He was one of the first board of directors. He came up with some great ideas and art for the group and a good branding plan for LUG/IP.
August 23, 2007 – William Bilancio, Board Member, Linux Users Group in Princeton worked directly with John at Linux Users Group in Princeton
John and I have worked on several library-related projects. He approaches technology with a kind, personable genius that is rare to find among individuals of his caliber. He’s a wonderful co-presenter, mentor, and instructor. He is an invaluable knowledge college.
John is a talented, enthusiastic manager of technologies and an engaging, dedicated instructor, patient and supportive to those not as well exposed to teaching tools and methodologies. It was these very qualities, as well as his technical expertise, that encouraged me to present with him and to co-author a book chapter on Web 2.0 tools. John goes out of his way to make himself available to those in need of professional development. I am honored to be his colleague at Rider University.

After a recent presentation on Inkscape to the NJ Association of Library Assistants, I got this wonderful letter from an attendee.
“Hi Mr. LeMasney, I attended your 2:15-3:45 afternoon class yesterday on June 7, 2011. I couldn’t go without thanking you for your time and sharing the education with me as a student. The class will benefit me in the future. It was a lot to grasp but eventually I will learn it all. Your class gave me a good start…It felt great to sit in a classroom environment again being that I’ve been out of school for a while. This class encouraged me to continue my education. The reason why I’m writing you is because I had to leave your class a few minutes early due to transportation and I didn’t have the chance to thank you at the end of the class. You deserve all respect and the right to know that it was appreciated. Take care until the next NJALA Conference.”
Diane, who does the programming for a New York users group said this in response to a seminar on Inkscape:
“Thank you for the time and energy you invested to create a stupendous presentation. I wanted to let you know that you opened quite a few eyes at the meeting! They want more!”
Jane, a recent attendee to my talk on the Future of Mobile Technologies said:
“I would like to follow you around for a day and listen. I just got my masters and still think that following you around for a day would be the best 8 hours of education I could get.”
Alice Parfitt, a recent Inkscape workshop attendee said:
“In the next two weeks, I want to learn everything about Inkscape that you haven’t already taught us. When this Inkscape workshop is finished, I hope you will plan something similar for GIMP and other creative technologies. If I were still in library school…I would try to do an internship with you….Someone told me they took a class in photo editing with you at NJLA this year? I would like to hear more about this… Would you ever be interested in doing programs at OCL for staff and/or the public? I’ve learned a lot from you and am very impressed with your knowledge, philosophy, and teaching style. ”
In hearing that we were able to extend a series of workshops at Princeton Public Library on Inkscape from 4 weeks to five, attendee Beth Plankey said
“This is exactly what I was hoping for. I am delighted. I would gladly attend every Monday for the rest of my life! It may take that long to learn all that Inkscape can do. Thanks ever so much to all of you!”
A third attendee, Martha Otis, who was not able to make all the PPL sessions, remarked hopefully about future sessions:
“I am glad to have had an intro to this marvelous program by a patient and imaginative teacher. Sorry I’ll miss classes but grateful for what I learned. Keep me informed please.”
I was recently voted in as one of the most interesting NJ Librarians to hear present in an open internet survey, though I am not, in fact, a Librarian. Many people have mistaken my passion for Libraries as an actual MLS. (http://redlibcomic.blogspot.com/2010/08/winners-most-likelynj-librarians-survey.html)
Other quick comments from recent session feedback forms:
John was so organized, knowledgeable, over all just excellent.
Great information, especially from John. I liked how he was able to concisely explain the various technology tools that are available.
I had a lot of questions about technology that were answered during the session. I’m sure I’ll have to call the Technology office less often this fall now that I know how to post things on Blackboard, etc.
John was terrific! A great source and valuable resource!
