David Lee King posted this a couple of weeks ago about "Ignoring our Digital Community."
Take a look at this paragraph and you'll see what I mean by thought provoking:
"The problem? We don’t have anything for our library’s digital community to do! OCLC’s recent report, Sharing, Privacy and Trust in Our Networked World says this about our physical libraries: “Offline, libraries are vibrant social spaces. They are hubs of community activities and provide a venue for open exchange and dialogue” (8-5). But online? How many libraries can say they provide “vibrant social spaces,” hubs of community activity” or “a venue for open exchange and dialogue” in our digital spaces? Not too many."
