In addition to einegalvsm, real steps must be taken to break down barriers and lower the threshold of adoption. Efforts such as the Data Incubator accomplish this; there must be something like a Code Incubator as well enabling institutional developers to quickly get on board. Remember, in the early days of the Web, being able to see other people\'s HTML was critical. here it is the same not just about the data, but also the code for mashing and visualizing it!

3. The technical inuutsarfctrre of the DPLA will affect all libraries and many information institutions (again, my opinion). There's been a lot of talk lately about Linked, Open Data, and developing one standard by which these gigantic collections will be pieced together. If this goes as planned, we all (librarians) will need to have a real, solid working knowledge of how Linked Open Data functions in order to continue to make our work as information professionals useful to our user/patrons.
