Thanks for your reply Chris! I think your example of the smart phone is spot on. I was in a similar situation. I only ever used my phone to text and call. When I was given a hand-me-down iPhone earlier this year, I found my self browsing the net, sharing photos and videos with my friends, on social media, doing online banking etc on my iPhone without even realising these were things I wanted my phone to do! I even ending up giving my iPad away because I never used it anymore. I found reading the article on San Diego Public library really interesting because, by the way the expressed their article, it seemed that they provided the printers before they knew there was a precise need for it. Their program is going really, extremely well. I keep thinking back to our tour of the makerspace at the Edge and the rationale there.
