critical reading for the rude

physical/virtual realities

Libraries gonna lead, or not?

This here is a stone-age version of where we’re going.  Format (and medium, in that sense) don’t really matter.  All that jazzy McLuhan stuff, forget it.  Physical and virtual slide into and out of each other, into / out of devices / platforms.  For chrissakes, you’ll half-be an e-book yrself.  Get over it.  It’s the “augmented” reality, the kirkyan world you’ll be working with.

So, start with lower-stakes.  Start with “books” rather than bodies.
