CSLA 2008, Post 3

I woke up this morning and went to see Joe McHugh speak. Mr. McHugh is an inveterate storyteller and it was a good presentation. It was part personal story, part personal philosophy, and part personal politics.

I appreciate presentations that showcase how the author got from point A to point B and McHugh certainly does this.

Some thoughts:
  • The new mythos - the new religion - is media. Performers (actors, journalists, etc.) are our new priests.

  • Librarians have the power to change this.
