Balance

Balance is important in life. We must work and play. Sometimes I wonder if  we forget about balance. It's easy to get caught up in the excitement, flash, and potential of new technology. Yes, we must look ahead to our young and future users. We must accommodate them and many of the library2.0 possibilities will be appreciated by them. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the L2 is a bad thing. I'm looking forward to seeing how we can best incorporate L2 services into our libraries. But we must not forget our longtime users who may not be as comfortable on computers. In our rush to look ahead, sometimes we forget those we currently serve. Now, I'm not saying that we aren't currently serving either group, current and future users, incorrectly or poorly. What I am stressing is that balance is important in all we do, so let's keep it in mind.
