Electronic Publishing

I like the way that Cory Doctorow in the article "You do like reading off a computer screen" puts this arguement in context. So many times I hear people saying that they can't stand reading from computer screens and yet they do lots of it like someone shovelling "Mars Bars into his gob while telling you how much he hates chocolate".

It is smart to talk about the current technology of the time for publishing print and music and then to discuss how it impacted on the products produced. Did they make novels in the days of papyrus?

It puts it all into perspective.
