OK, so this isn't really about librarian image, or systems librarianship, but dang, it got my attention: In a post-MacWorld-speech New York Times interview, Steve Jobs said "the fact is that people don't read anymore".
*phffft*, Mr. Jobs. Tell that to the hordes of people I see checking out books and reading magazines every time I go to my public library, or the even larger hordes I see whenever I go into Borders or B&N.
Hrmph. I don't believe his "facts". Hrmph, I say!
