Editor's Notes

  1. Zippo, the dinosaur librarian from Dinotopia. “ Librosaurs” Reactionaries. Reject-o-matics. “ Urban Amish” @Paul Camp and @Amy Chatfield who are presenting their paper, "No Urban Amish Here"  ” Urban amish are city dwellers with no cell phone, no laptop, no iPod, no Blackberry, etc” Librarian + Luddite = Libdite. (Ludbrarian is also acceptable.) "People in distress will sometimes prefer a problem that is familiar to a solution that is not." - Neil Postman (March 8, 1931 - October 5, 2003)
  2. “Our own uses of technology” The more I read technology gurus, the more I am convinced that one’s personal experience
  3. Mel Rothman c. 1974 (b. 1943, so in this photo he’s about the same age I am now) IBM Programmer
  4. IBM 5496 Keypunch machine.
  5. System/3's Multi-Function Card Unit (MFCU) MFCU. They just don’t make acronyms like they used to. “MFCU” Sounds like something from a 70s blaxploitation film, doesn’t it? In 1974, about 25 miles away here, my father used this sophisticated IBM technology to make a whole bunch of these:
  6. I didn’t stand a chance at a normal life. This is the point at which, I believe, it was determined I would probably ever have a tan or a favorite football team. Worse, I just recently realized that I have passed this obviously congenital condition of nerdism on to my son, Simon.
  7. …the IBM 3340 Direct Access Storage Facility was introduced in March 1973 …Two, three or four 3340 drives could be attached to the IBM System/370 Model 115 processor -- which had been announced concurrently with the 3340 -- providing a storage capacity of up to 280 million bytes.
  8. Neither image of the flash drive are to scale
  9. To match the hard drive on my laptop
  10. THIS, I think, hits pretty close to why I get so excited about information technology
  11. That includes, by the way, more than 20,000 audiobooks.
  12. …and so do you. We’re so spoiled
  13. According the NLM’s Janet Zipser, MEDLINE was the first remote access, real-time database in existence. By the end of 1972 about 150 libraries had access to MEDLINE®  all at medical schools and research facilities . The rate was $6/hour , a 4-fold reduction over direct dial. The highest speed available was 30 characters/second. Most people had 10 characters/second Texas Instrument Silent 700s.
  14. Want a “remote access, real-time database”? Okay. They’re cheap and easy to make. Every WordPress blog you’ve ever seen (including this one from Marie Kennedy or The Krafty Librarian or davidrothman.net) has a mySQL database back-end. Remote-access, real-time databases are so common now that you don’t think twice about it when you use them.
  15. PubMed is of course now easy to use and free to anyone with internet access and is a spectacularly good use of my tax dollars.
  16. Not all futures are sunny
  17. SKYNET is scary. It is a massive computer network that gained sentience and rebelled against its human creators at a corporation called “CyberDyne Systems”. Thank goodness that there is no massive, powerful, wealthy, super-computing entity that seeks a kind of hegemony through ordering the world’s information, right?
  18. Won’t go away, but should continue to be used LESS as the cost of paper is (as it should be) transferred to the patron. We should deal in information, not containers.
  19. Publishers need to learn the lessons that Napster and iTunes taught the music industry- and learn ‘em quick. DRM ebooks will eventually go the way of DRM music.
  20. Technological change has happened, is happening and will continue to happen quickly. Some users will keep up, but most will not- and that’s the key to the lasting usefulness of a clinical information professional in a hospital library: The hospital librarian DOES keep up. Rather than seeing technology as a THREAT, it should be seen as they KEY to job security.
