We are at a turning point in a shifting paradigm of constant access to information, and as such the Internet is a
revolutionary leap forward for the exchange of ideas and free markets. The decisions being made now will
affect future generations, and an expanding global community must be acknowledged. Direct or indirect
censorship by concerned citizens, special interests, or government could stifle this great resource.
The Internet is like the Wild West. It threatens privacy as well as personal security. Our top priority must be
protecting our children and ourselves, even if it means sacrificing some functionality to do so. We must push
the government to institute laws and restrictions that holdWhen the item you want is checked out to someone else you may request that it be held for you when it is returned. Requests can be made for any item in our catalog including new releases and items on order. You will receive notification via e-mail (or telephone) when your hold is available for pick up. Your request will be honored in the order it is received. Internet companies responsible for maintaining
standards of privacy.
The Internet is fundamentally changing the way we live. Much of what we do professionally and interpersonally
has a home online. This is negatively affecting our health, our ability to communicate interpersonally,
and our ability to focus for long periods of time. We must think about the way we develop our
relationships with technology.
