Books have a future
Books do have a future. And now someone is maintaining a blog about that future.
I've always taken the view that the internet would not bring about the death of books and newspapers. I simply don't see the two media as competing so such an extent.
Yes, I read a lot of news on the web and have a lot of it delivered by email, but I still buy newspapers. Notwithstanding the fact that no-one likes to sit in front of computers all the time, it's also fair to say that most people don't like looking at smaller, portable screens all the time either.
E-books and e-newspapers have their place, but so do dead trees.
