The Future of Reading juxtaposed

Mark Pilgrim does some mighty provocative juxtapositioning of then and now quotes about books and reading.

The juxtapositions certainly make the case that things are different. They certainly point to things we’re all be sorry to give up, like being able to lend a friend a book. But, of course, they don’t tell the whole story, because the whole story is not only complex, and it’s not only unwritten, but it’s the story of the coming change in norms. And a change in norms rewrites all the stories leading up to it.

Anyway, it’s a terrific piece. Totally worth getting riled up about. [Tags: ]
