Whenever I see one of these videos I always wonder how I can possibly keep up without taking on learning technology as a full time job. I also wonder how libraries or other organizations are supposed to keep up without having a full time position dedicated to learning and implementing new technologies. This is not to say that every technology needs to be used or even that every technology should be used. But this video confirms my belief that organizations need to be quicker to respond to changes in technology, and a full-time staff person would be a great way to ensure that this happens.
