Technology
Data is created rapidly and
                constantly.
Data is only
useful in context.
As information becomes more complex,
        so do contextual opportunities.
Welcome to the Internet.
Also... welcome to the Internet.
Change is the new constant.
Information Pareidolia
The Profane
The mundane
The sacred
The astonishing
Users are their own operators.
We see the road but not the
               destination.
Like-minded people stick together.
Is our profession sustainable?
21st Century Librarianship = Information Architecture
Open Source




SOA                 SaaS
Example?
                 Open Source
Insurge,
 Locum




           SOA                 SaaS
Transparency
Boundaries are artificial.
Security needs to change.
UX must be predictable, familiar.
Get everywhere from anywhere.
Users need to know where to go.
Retrieval should be as
easy as storage.
Speed is essential.
Seams are the weakest point.
Simple is usually better.




                            Except when it’s not.
There is always a formula.




         It always depends.
Information + Truth = Knowledge
Knowledge is a personal pursuit.
