In London’s technology e-zine The Register, a writer laments the lack of utility he thinks the Internet has after ten years of growth and development and praises librarians because of their abilities to do things technology can’t.
“If you’re in doubt, befriend a librarian, and from the resulting dialog, you’ll learn to start asking good questions. Your results, we strongly suspect, will be much more fruitful than any iterative Google searches.”
“The disappearance of “the Internet” – in its c.1994 incarnation isn’t too much to worry about. It never really existed, and what we must value is the information archives we have now. If in doubt – ask a librarian, while you can still find one.”
