Given how much librarians love to panic over new technology that’s going to eliminate their jobs and make libraries obsolete, I’m surprised I haven’t seen any librarian blogging/tweeting about Siri, the magic iPhone robot that can answer all your questions. Siri seems like the obvious first step to replacing reference librarians with voice-recognizing computers that can cull answers from global databases. Panic, reference librarians! PANIC!
