The Future Of The eBook

from the everything-you-could-possibly-want-to-know dept

An insanely long, but still fascinating look at everything you could possibly want to know about ebooks. The article looks at the social implications, technology implications, cultural implications of ebooks, as well as makes some predictions about the future of books, writing, and libraries. The article compares what’s happening in the publishing world to what’s been happening in the music world – and explains why some things are different (and some aren’t). If you’re even the least bit interested in this stuff (and have a good hour or so of free time to read), I suggest you take a look.
