Blake posted a thought piece titled 10 Reasons Why The Web Is Almost A Substitute For Libraries. In the post I think Blake makes many valid points. I think there is another important point to consider. Many of the quality resources on the Internet were put there by libraries. For example you can find this book on the Internet The Open Polar Sea: A Narrative of a Voyage of Discovery Towards the North Pole, in the Schooner "United States" and you don't have to go to a library to read it.

Moondust : In Search of the Men Who Fell to EarthFrom Publishers Weekly
Between 1969 and 1972, 12 men traveled a quarter-million miles to the moon and returned safely. In this powerful, intimate story, journalist Smith sets out to find these men and discover how that experience changed their lives. Smith, a boy living in a nondescript California subdivision at the time of the Apollo missions and caught up in the endless possibility of space flight, journeys to the halls of power in Washington, D.C., and the backwoods of Texas in search of these mythical figures of American know-how. He finds Neil Armstrong, the first man on the Moon, still cool and confident, a plainspoken man who never let on how close that mission came to disaster. In Gene Cernan, the last man on the Moon, he finds an imperious, driven, highly successful businessman. If all of the men share one affliction, it's fame. Once at the center of the world's attention, these mostly ordinary men with some extraordinary gifts and luck have lived their lives being asked the same questionâ€”What was it like "up there"? In an artful blend of memoir and popular history, Smith makes flesh-and-blood people out of icons and reveals the tenderness of his own heart.

I have a trade for you. I need to add some movies to my NetFlix list. What should I see? What movie do most people not know about that you think are neat?
I have one for you in trade.
Man on the Train -- Movie is in French but you can turn on the english subtitles. Go to Ebert's sight and read the review and you will have some insight on why I think the movie is so good.
