I love a good sneering match

The Chronicle: Wired Campus Blog: Librarians Find a Place in a 'Web 2.0' World

The short blurb itself is a summary of an lengthy (41 pp PDF) essay titled "The Peloponnesian War and the Future of Reference, Cataloging, and Scholarship in Research Libraries." Even more interesting is the immediate ad hominem attack on librarians by a self-described scientist. I have to say that this is not typical of my experience with researchers in the biomedical sciences, most of whom understand and appreciate the role of librarians and libraries in research and teaching.
