While I did read this in a blog entry that purported to be a report of a keynote, I'm stating up front that this must be a mistake or a strawman.
Or maybe just a joke that was taken seriously.
Supposedly, someone said that every library should employ a developer.
Every library. Consider the size and staffing of, oh, every small and rural library in America, a few thousand of them.
I won't name the person who supposedly said this because it's so unbelievable.
