Looking for answers: How will we keep paying for all this stuff? How are we going to archive all this digital stuff? How can we align author incentives, the publishing marketplace, and the future of the scholarly record? When will libraries benefit from well-designed free software? How much should we be telling users what they want versus asking? How does anyone manage information overload? Oh, and how will we keep paying for all this stuff?
