2. Lots of people, especially young, creating and sharing content online (most blogging personal info for small audience)
3. More people are accessing content created by others {got Dooce confused w/Queen of Sky, but got point across}
4. Many sharing what they know and feel online
5. Contributing knowledge through sharing (peer to peer stuff - grid computing)
6. Customizing content (myyahoo etc)

5 Challenges for librarians
1. navigation
2. context
3. focus (best thinking, ideas in relaxation mode)
