What is Cloud Computing and How will it Affect Libraries?

As with many questions about the future of technology, I’m afraid that the only completely honest answer to the questions in the title of this post is probably “I don’t know and neither does anyone else”. So pardon me while I make a provisional attempt to answer this unanswerable question.

Transformational Libraries

There was a great article posted on CNN last week, The Future of Libraries, With or Without Books. I was happy to see many familiar names that have been involved with TechSoup for Libraries and the MaintainIT project. I love hearing about libraries that transform and that are true community centers. How has your library evolved? What role will technology play in the new library spaces? Will we ever have a Netflix model for library books? We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
