So, Michael Rosenblum lives across from a hole and he likes it. He likes it, because that hole, formerly a library, will soon be a condominium. What does Rosenblum’s opinion piece, “What’s a Library?” published in the Huffington Post offer? Pageviews.
The piece was originally published on Rosenblum’s blog and generated a sparse response. Why? Perhaps, because librarians don’t read his blog and a lot of librarians and their friends read Huffington Post. Since there’s little of substance in Rosenblum’s blog post, it seems more like an attempt to anger librarians and supporters of libraries in order to engender pageviews.
See “5 Reasons Libraries Will Fail – Published in 1864” for further ridiculousness.
