Re: Printed books being overthrone by digital ones?
i see it more as a both/and rather than an either/or
for example being able to do a word search is a fantastic pro when trying to look something up.
obviously the aesthetic beauty of a well crafted old school book is something that an ebook cant compete with.
many books i've really wanted to read have been out of print and it's been wonderful to find an electronic version available instantly rather than have to physically track it down.
i love both and use both and there are many pros and cons to both.
it reminds me of traditional instruments and digital instruments it's all about what works for a particular requirement.
like most paradigms it's false because we dont have to choose one or the other
i choose both.
