Happy birthday to Chris Peters, MaintainIT Cookbook author and one of my favorite people to turn to when I need to better understand something about library technology. If he doesn't know the answer to a question I ask, he sees that as a challenge and soon he does know and explains it to me, too.
I think that building your own personal support network is the key to surviving in the world of ever-changing technology. Friends, relatives, co-workers, other colleagues... Having some sort of "official" tech support is great, but I think for learning, there's an informal communication structure that really facilitates the comfort and sense of enjoyment that leads to continuous learning. Do you have one? Who would you ask, "Hey, I keep hearing about Twitter. What is it?" "What kind of cell phone should I buy?" "Are Macs really better than PCs (or vice versa)?"... ?
