Here’s an interesting little article that came from this week’s reading about the new and improved “Librarian 2.0” including the qualities this mutation of Librarian 1.0 must develop.
And here’s another one by a futurist who claims that writing is a technology with a limited lifespan. I’m always a little skeptical of futurists. It’s a fairly grand claim to make that writing will disappear but then who I am to say? I’m not a futurist that’s for sure.
Anyway, it has some interesting background on the daVinci collection as an archive and it’s nice to think that libraries will adapt and remain central to our culture.
