For The Love of Libraries
People love information.
Data. Numbers. Stats. Comments. Biographies. We consumer data in massive terrabyte chunks everyday.
Tumblr is a great example of people’s love for data, in all shapes and forms. Another great example is a the local library.
This weekend, I headed to my local library to join and start borrowing books. I needed a new membership because I’ve semi-recently moved to a different county. When I arrived, I’d forgotten how important the local library is to so many people.
I had to wait a few minutes while 3 different people signed up to be new members. The computer kiosks were full. There were 4 staff members in this small library and they were all busy helping people. There were people busily walking in between the aisles looking for their books.
It was pretty awesome.
