New Presentation: "Libraries and Broadband: Becoming Radical Change Agents in Our Communities"

Slides from a recent presentation by Professor R. David Lankes, Director of the Information Institute, Syracuse University's School of Information Studies, and director of the library science program for the school.

From the Abstract:

And so we come to the point. Why bring broadband libraries. We donít do it as a means to bring facebook to the masses. We wire our buildings not as points of distraction or simply another service the library offers. Broadband is not a way to bring the world to the citizens of Vermont, but to unleash the passions and potentials of the citizens of Vermont on the rest of the world. Just as the roads of previous generations bound together empires and democracies We can use broadband to bring together the farmer and the lawyer, the entrepreneur and the student, the politician and the protestor in a grand conversation on the future of the state.

Note: Professor Lankes adds, "Due to conference setup I was not able to capture the audio and screencast. However, the session was video taped, so I hope to add these later."
