Why We Fight

Jenica has a post that made me give the big “Amen!” this morning. I am not going to restate what she said, that would be silly, but I completely agree with her. I could share my own stories: the ones that make me smile, the ones that make me angry with impotence, the ones that make me cheer, and the ones that threaten to make me lose heart. I just stick to what I can do: snarky comments and occasional thoughtful observation.

–Jane, optimism is what she does

    The article is pretty good overall. Way I have come to see it, if they don’t want to change, we’ll either drag them along for the ride or leave them in the dust. Change happens; it’s a natural part of life. Our choice is in whether we embrace it and make it work for us or let it run us over. Not that I am all rah rah for the techie people. Some of them can be just as extreme as the “dinosaurs” who resist change (old or otherwise). After all, technology should not be adopted simply for the sake of it being cool or because everyone is doing, but because it will helps us provide better service to our patrons. Or so I think.

    I agree. We have to find the balance between using the newest technology and serving the needs of the users. I wish we were at that point at MPOW, but there are some technology things that I think are no brainers that we have yet to employ. Oh well. All in its own time.
