I Can't Wait

I get an oversized postcard in the mail telling me that one of the library's resource's is about to be updated/upgraded/upsomethinged. I'm directed to a web site with the same pretty picture as on the postcard except the image is flipped left to right. I can sign up for alerts or to follow it on facebook (this is 2011, after all). There's a link to a video. The video is a static shot of a young woman staring wistfully out the window of a train into a green field. The narration tells me how our current busy age needs better search tools while some new age music plays in the background. Except that the video stops every three or four seconds because of bandwidth or latency problems. The postcard says look for the next piece of the puzzle in the mail soon.
