Down with the AT-AT!

Would a galaxy-spanning totalitarian government controlled by a maniacal emperor really spend the time, effort and money to create a hulking machine that looks and moves like an extinct mammal? It’s all intimidation and no teeth; big, bloated, a complete waste of resources. Why continue to use archaic technology when there are better solutions available to deal with your rebellion?

This blog is about new technologies. It’s about making stuff that looks good and is useable by everyone. In our case, everyone means the folks who use our libraries. Discussions may include open source software, widgets, wadgets, blogging, our clunky proprietary OPAC and stuff in general that libraries are doing these days to take tech to the people.

Please contribute! Down with the Empire!
