Digitization, one global library, and sharing knowledge

"As we put our works on line, we'll only need one library and will have multiple knowledges. Why have more than one library when you can link to and aggregate whatever you need? Oh, the library will be distributed and portions will be replicated for safety's sake — we will have learned something from Alexandria — but that's just an implementation "detail." When all our works are digitized, a local library will be nothing but a playlist."
