It's interesting that Webster was remarking on the same phenomenon we face: electrification. We are now 160 years into the age when the printed word became digital, first as dots & dashes and now as zeros and ones. In about 140 years it will be over. That's when nobody will remember anybody who remembers the pre-electric age. Of course, it's all dependent on having reliable energy sources ;)

  • "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
