Libraries face tremendous challenges to create effective and responsive institutions in a Googlezon world. But the type of leadership we need so far hasn’t materialized. If it isn’t going to come from the administrators, let it come from the coders. In this talk I will build a case for establishing Code4Lib as a nonprofit library software cooperative. A financial structure would allow us to put real resources—both financial and human—into bringing libraries into the 21st century.
