Thought-provoking post by Danny Bradbury:
Is a butt-ugly $400 electronic prison for books going to get America reading again, or cause those kids to suddenly get interested in Thomas Pynchon? Survey says no. If publishers are driven by anything to look at new and innovative ways to deliver content, that problem will be what drives them. And if they do figure out a way to deliver content in different forms more suitable to the net generation, it’s unlikely to look anything like a book. Which is unfortunate, given that Amazon just invested in a device designed to mimic it as closely as possible.
Curious thing, the book. So easy to digitize; so hard to digitize well.
