Everyone knows libraries have been having increasing trouble since Google took over most indexing tasks. Why is it that the web hasn't created equivalent roles for librarians in online contexts as they already have in physical libraries? Is Google so good that librarians aren't necessary? (I don't think so, or I wouldn't be posting.)
I want to see better curation of information online, not just pinterest boards and tumblr blogs. I want a question and answer framework that can't be dominated by a corporate entity (like yahoo/quora/stackexchange). I want everything to be easy to archive and file (not 'share' through other services, and not 'export' to the file system). I'm building what I hope to address systemic issues like this.
I know that I want to serve the community of librarians. I understand you to be a crowd for whom openness and democratized participation are important. I think you want to curate information spanning domains and apps and free free information from the framework with which it was published without cutting ties to its context and author.
I'm here to find out what pains you most. What you long for. What you need to make your best impact. I can promise you that I'm writing free software, and there isn't a greedy startup behind my plea for input (though I can't guarantee anything about who else is on reddit, of course).
