News and Trends We Could Do Without
by Paula J. Hane
At this time of year, I watch closely for the usual year-end wrap-ups and trend watch articles, though I keep an eye open all year for evidence of emergent trends in the seemingly endless tide of industry news. As usual, the trends seem to present an interesting mix of opportunities and challenges. In this fast-paced, increasingly online world, things are certainly never dull. Lately, I've run across some news items and trends that I feel we could do without. Note that these are my personal comments—no reflection on Information Today, Inc.
