ABSTRACT
Editorial. Contends that `because we can make one' is the most important force driving technological change. How applications for devices are often not found until long after they are built; The only real limitation on the advance of information technology will be limitations in imagination or vision; The huge potential for user interactivity with information in libraries; Need to rethink library information in the terms that technological process will allow.
