The LITA blog and list of top tech trends

The Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) blog contains postings on top technology trends, including a posting from Roy Tennant. The lists are easy to skim. My favorite, from Eric Morgan, says:
You can decreasingly expect people to come to your website for content.

Instead, explore ways to integrate your content and services into the working environments of you patrons. Playing a role in institution-wide portal applications is one example. Create Search Bar tools for Firefox browsers. Explore the use of XUL to create institution-specific interfaces to collections and services. Syndicate your content, and develop tools — gadgets/widgets — providing seamless access to you, your content, and your services from within the user’s browser, email client, and RSS reader.
