Is it me, or has the library war already started? Because I keep reading about how the old library is dead and the new library needs building. That print has been mortally wounded and now those inbred and bastard children fight to be the next ruler. We have our own Game of Thrones (this week on HBO, which I have neither read nor seen, so whatever connection I make, is purely accidental) in the fantasy library world of Bibliotania (yeah, you come up with a better name):
- We have the Knowledge Facilitators, once loyal to the throne but now impatient for political change so long as the office remains in their control.
- We have the Transliterates, plotting with foreign armies or mercenaries, anyone who can bring swift wealth and power.
- We have the Digital Natives, spoiled, selfish, corrupt, unable to see beyond their immediate desires, but who command a great army.
