Calgary Libraries in Action: Librarians -- in Love with Technology?

Are libraries and librarians too fixated on the latest trends, 2.0s, and techie gadgetry? Have our energies shifted to facebook -ing to the detriment of actual book -ing? Has the virtual library trumped the physical library? Most importantly, why does it matter?
