Alison Aldrich, Technology Coordinator for the NN/LM Pacific Northwest Region, wrote an interesting blog post called, “(Fire)Wallflowers Invited to Dance?” She presents some evidence that firewall rules against Web 2.0 tools (such as blogs, wikis, etc.) are beginning to relax a bit at hospital libraries.
