Stephen wrote a long article recently on change, which struck both positive and negative chords with its readers. You may not agree with all that he says, but there likely there is something in the article for you to ponder. Here is what stood out to me:
I believe that we can’t control change on a personal level. I can, however, control my own emotional reaction to it. On the other hand, I do agree with those who say that the best way to predict the future is to invent it. We, libraries, have the ability and the intelligence to create a future that is compelling, desirable, and independent of the visions that are driven by advertisers. In fact, I believe that we have a duty to invent this future.
