Hi Mark

My take on this is as follows. Paper is fantastic, and I love it in a way that goes beyond utility. However, eventually the book will go the way of the horse: from an essential of life to a luxury of the rich.

The driver to the change will be cost (paper vs. e-medium), and I believe it will begin in the next decade, and be complete a decade after that.

For the full Monty, see: http://learningtechnologiesconference.wordpress.com/2007/11/26/kindle-the-end-of-the-book-no-and-yes/

Best regards

  • "The hallmark of revolution is that the goals of the revolutionaries cannot be contained by the institutional structure of the society they live in. As a result, either the revolutionaries are put down, or some of those institutions are transmogrified, replaced, or simply destroyed. We are plainly witnessing a restructuring of the music and newspaper businesses, but their suffering isn’t unique, it’s prophetic." --Clay Shirky
