"It's 2010: 20 Technologies to Watch, and How to Cope" for SLA's Click University. The real secret is that the best way to cope is to remain positive and reframe our perception of the changes. They don't happen to us. We make them happen. Create the future. Who is better qualified to help invent the information and knowledge based economy than us?
