I'm excited to learn about these new technologies, hopefully I'll get a chance to share this new found knowledge of 2.0.
Isn't this a lofty idea of what a library in the future might look like: "Library 4.0: This will be the library for the aesthetic economy, the dream society, which will need libraries as mind gyms; libraries as idea labs; libraries as art salons." It's hard to imagine this.
I think the public has a misperception of how technology is used in the library now. Making the leap to a mind gym is a bit much for me. Most of our computers in HFAR are used for gaming, reading e-mail, watching movie clips, downloading music and looking at porn. In-house customers aren't clammering to use our Premium Resources, even though I love to offer these services. Maybe they'll start needing help with 2.0....
I'm not sure how libraries will fit into and thrive in the second coming of the Web.
