Encyclopedia salesmen hate wikipedia…

Seth Godin on his blog points out that advancing technology and tools have displaced and made people angry for a very long time…..think “middle Ages” and “monks”….:) I wonder: Is there anybody/anything that school and public librarians are angry about?

He writes the following:

Encyclopedia salesmen hate wikipedia…

And CNET hates Google
And newspapers hate Craigslist
And music labels hate Napster
And used bookstores hate Amazon
And so do independent bookstores.
Dating services hate Plenty of Fish
And the local shoe store hates Zappos
And courier services hate fax machines
And monks hate Gutenberg

Apparently, technology doesn’t care who you hate.
