Libraries in a transliterate, technology fluent world

This presentation by Bobbi Newman is hard hitting and has some great quotes.

I liked the one by Douglas Adams (of "Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy" fame) best :

"I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
    • Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
    • Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
    • Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things. "
