Lorcan Dempsey on The Big Switch

Lorcan Dempsey has just posted some thoughts on Carr's The Big Switch. I like this quote:
The 'big switch' is going to be a major issue for libraries over the next few years. They spend too much time getting their systems to work, and not enough time putting them to work.
Thanks to him for linking back to synthesize-specialize-mobilize.

Meanwhile, I must confess that I have yet to read The Big Switch, just excerpts from it on the web. I've put a hold on our library's copy of it (I think I know who has it checked out).

That's one handy quote to use. Glad you got to the book - was pushing it during my Summit sessions.
