Thought du jour - 30.08.10

In our rush to have all of the latest gadgets, including those that may become part of our own bodies, we must not forget those who don't have access to them. The alternative to maintaining an awareness of the growing technological divide within humanity, and trying to do something about it, is a bleak future for us all.

Emphatically agree.

Who will publish books in hard copy when Steve Bezos has managed to sell his self-enriching lie to the publishinbg world that people want only e-books for his Kindle readers?

I don't see any real harm in what I'll call electronic readers - indeed, when traveling, they are probably quite convenient. But I'm a book guy, and always will be, so I can't imagine ever owning one.

Besides, when I'm traveling, the last thing I usually want to do is read! ;-)
