Thomas Frey Is A Futurist. He's An Architect Of The Future...
Thomas Frey predicts futures.
He's a self titled Architect of The Future.
He's a lateral thinker and not afraid to take risks with ideas.
His interesting blog The Futurist is here
but let's look at how he sees a new future for public libraries.
The Colorado based Thomas Frey was the keynote speaker at a recent Library conference in New Zealand and told the audience that a new chapter was beginning for libraries as
community based assets.
As well as continuing to loan out books, games, movies and music, they would be lending flying drones, have 3D printers available, become movie and music studios, theatres, that libraries would obtain newly invented products and through corporate sponsorship, make them available for community use.
He has an optimistic view of life as we know it. And that's good...
