Google's initial strength lay in not using human intervention or indexing, like Yahoo was, because the internet was growing so fast that humans couldn't keep up. It is interesting that now social media has "crowd-sourced" human intervention so that it at least begins to scale against the geometrically-expanding information on the Web. Can we postulate a human-intervention vs web info cycle of some sort?

What this position doesn't take into account is the next brilliant leader, that is the next Steve Jobs. People like that tend to be disruptive game-changers and technology is their native habitat for the foreseeable future.

This is something new we are doing with our Digital Collections. I'm interested in other uses Libraries and cultural institutions have for digitized archival/historical material. http://libwww.freelibrary.org/exhibitions/slideshow.cfm?exhibit=1
Welcome to the Civil War Online Exhibition - 2011 is the 150th anniversary, the sesquicentennial, of the beginning of the Civil War, still the deadliest war in American history. On the following pages are materials from our special collections and other resources documenting the activity during the Civil War.

From Steve Jobs remarks at Stanford commencement in 2005. "No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new...Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life." The text of the speech is well worth reading.

"Within five years, I believe many office workspaces will consist of a docking station, keyboard, mouse or trackpad, and large monitor(s). Each morning, you’ll come in, place your tablet in the dock, and turn on the monitor. You’ll still use the keyboard, mouse, and monitor for creating content, but you’ll actually be doing it on a tablet (or maybe even a smarthphone)." from the blog post linked below: Hmmm...within five years...?

Within five years? Sure, I could see it. The key is the docking station (with attached keyboard), right? They already have iPad cases with built-in Bluetooth keyboards. And there are already phones out there that are intended to be used with docking stations (the Atrix is one, but I think there are several). We have more computing power in our phones and tablets than we need, for day to day life--unless we spend a lot of time developing, or doing hard-core image or video editing--so why not utilize it more efficiently? Your tablet would serve as the life-line to all of our cloud-based services, and you would bring it with you everywhere--I look forward to that future! :)

As I am viewing the post my cat is knocking the remote on the floor and upending my wine glass with her tail because she startled herself...

I know. The longer posts could be good. So far though there are more fellow travelers on Twitter. I guess I'll just have to juggle social media :-)

I really like the number of tablets I have tried but some of these points are good ones. Especially the ones related to data input.
