Wow, we’ve been doing some good blogging this week. And by “we,” I mean “y’all.” But I’m back, and I’m ready to drop some thoughts. Multiple posts worth, in fact.
I’ll link (and edit) the titles below as I right them, but right now, I’m looking at:
- The more information is available, the more authority and provenance become vital
- To have authority, you need persistent identity
- To have persistent identity, somebody needs to pay some money
- Libraries as gatekeepers (and bill-paying proxies)
