These are Times

Social Media

The first I heard of the tragedy at the Boston Marathon was when I logged on to io9 to see what was new.

Here’s the article I found: How the Boston Marathon tragedy revealed the best side of social media.

This article hit home something that is often lost as librarians people argue over whether technology is “good” or “bad”: Technology is a tool people use. Whether it is good or bad is totally dependent on whether the people using it are doing so for good or bad.

I’m glad some people are using technology for good.
