Revenge of the Codex People

I've made a couple of references in passing to Michael Gorman's anti-Google and anti-blog screeds. Now the Online Computer Library Center blog reveals that these documents have deep historical roots.

The OCLC blog has several other relevant posts as well. And also see this OCLC report "2004 Information Format Trends: Content, Not Containers".

[Update 3/2/2005: for an antidote to Gormanitis, see Karen Schneider's post at Free Range Librarian. ]
