the future of libraries: a video

31 Mar

Don’t worry, it isn’t yet another ponderous and doom-laden post on the future of libraries… It’s a 1 minute video I created with the ridiculously easy-to-use Xtranormal.

The premise is, many years have passed and we’ve finally arrived at a future where there ARE no libraries. So the first thing such a future would need to do, is introduce them. If you describe what a library actually does without using the word ‘library’, people would be blown away by how amazing it was. What a concept! That’s what happens here.

I now have a Youtube Channel, if you’re interested. That’s me done till after Easter – have a nice holiday people! :)

    Final blog post before the Easter break… a (non-serious) video on the future of libraries.

    Love the loungey backing track and the bots.

    In the library-less future, ALL music is loungey because creativity has been abolished…

    Ha, nice! Very cute :)

    Like the look of Xtranormal too – might have to have a play with that…

    I’d definitely reccomend checking it out – it’s ridiculously easy to use and there’s load of different sets / characters / voices etc. Sometimes you have to mess around to make it speak like you want it to though – I had to write ‘wifi’ as Wie Fie to make it say it right…
