Tame The Web

Centers of Production

The text of a speech by Jon Udell fires me up this morning:

In an online world of small pieces loosely joined, librarians are among the most well qualified and highly motivated joiners of those pieces. Library patrons, meanwhile, are in transition. Once mainly consumers of information, they are now, on the two-way web, becoming producers too. Can libraries function not only as centers of consumption, but also as centers of production?

Jon’s answer is yes – the library should be a center of production as well, and you, dear readers, know I certainly agree! Don’t miss this excellent post of his talk “Remixing the Library.”
