We do not need to convert our libraries and research institutions into
free-market enterprises. We do not need to abandon the fundamental
principles on which these institutions are built. On the contrary, we must
return to those principles and apply them in a new technological
reality. Rebuilding the foundations of institutions is hard under the best
of circumstances. When users are shielded from the external
incentives/hardships of the free market, it is near impossible to disrupt,
and continuity remains an option far beyond reason.
