    SLA Military Libraries Community Quarterly Webinar - Tuesday, 19 October at 7:00 PM EST.

    Please join the SLA Military Libraries Community for our first MLC Quarterly Webinar, to be held Tuesday, 19 October at 7:00 PM EST.

    R. David Lankes will discuss his book "Forged in War: How a Century of War Created Today’s Information Society.”


    “Many of what we think of as Information Age tools and media --- computers, cell phones, the internet, encryption, and more --- evolved directly out of modern warfare. These tools started with World War I (which began not with arms, but with England cutting off underwater cables to Germany and isolating it), accelerated through World War II and the Cold War, and now play a center role in both declared and non-declared conflicts like election interference and cyberbattle.”

    “Author David Lankes’s work has been funded by organizations such as The MacArthur Foundation, The Institute for Library and Museum Services, NASA, The U.S. Department of Education, The U.S. Department of Defense, The National Science Foundation, and The U.S. State Department. This, his latest book will help all of us learn how war has shaped our world and how to begin to create an agenda to stand down weaponized data and a media that seeks to own our personal, even intimate data like one owns a gold mine.”

    Travis, thank you for this. Do you know if it will be recorded? I probably won't be able to watch it at the live time. Thank you.
