Impress Your Professor : Thomas Mann Takes on Web 2.0

So, does "Web 2.0" render traditional cataloging irrelevant? Thomas Mann doesn't think so, and I have to say that I adore his scornful, deft, sarcasm-laced, and beautifully written critique of his own colleagues over at LC -- this should be required reading for everyone in library school now...give it a try -- I promise you'll skip through it at a pace I would have thought impossible for such a seemingly deadly dull topic -- but this is a wonderful short story that puts all the right people in their place.
