Re: [BKARTS] relevance of the book in the internet age
>> here's the last six pages of Lineland, "The
Future of the Book of the Future," which deals
with the issues that have been discussed so well
in this thread <http://madlaughter.com/future_book.pdf>.
Jules Rules OK
I see what you mean about the errors that slipped
through, but it's all readable.
Before we reinvent the wheel, another set of
discussions (post-Jules) that are on this topic
and have not yet been referenced in the current
thread occurred in the online symposium "Text in
the Age of the Internet" and are archived at
http://text-e.org/, excerpts of which were
published in a print edition titled _text-e: Le
texte à L?heure de l?Internet_, Bibliothèque Centre Pompidou, 2003.

Monday, October 15, 2001 - Wednesday, October 31, 2001
How does one read on-screen? Does the change in

The Future of the Internet: A conversation with Theodore Zeldin
Friday, December 14, 2001 - Monday, December 31, 2001
Internet does not change the world. It is our
awareness of having new needs and goals that
creates a new vision of the world, a vision that
can help us understand what we want out of the Internet.

screen. We will try to explain why.
