Thing 2

Library 2.0 is a good tag to generate discussion, just as Web 2.0 is a good way to generate discussion and note the changing way of the internet.  In the 30+ years I've been involved with libraries, they have constantly been evolving.  If we want to get some mileage out of someone else's term, fine.  I do believe that libraries will have more to do with the internet than they already do as the years go by, just as society does.  If we want to use this term to generate discussion and ideas for this change fine.  I'm not so sure that Library 2.0 is "all new".  Rather, libraries have been evolving for a long time and this is just a continuation, perphaps a faster change just as everything else is changing more quickly.
