In an age of Sm-class telescopes, we should rethink the way we use small telescopes. While 2-4m telescopes are still needed and will continue to be operated largely in the traditional fashion, new lm-class telescopes operated robotically in global networks will enable a wide range of new and exciting scientific and educational projects, both by themselves and in conjunction with much larger telescopes. I describe our plans for such a global network of two lm-class robotic telescopes.
