Is Google Making Us Stupid?--Nicholas Carr
Is Google Making Us Stupid, Nicholas Carr. The Atlantic, Jul-Aug. 2010.
For me, as for others, the Net is becoming a universal medium, the conduit for most of the information that flows through my eyes and ears and into my mind.... My mind now expects to take in information the way the Net distributes it: in a swiftly moving stream of particles. Once I was a scuba diver in the sea of words. Now I zip along the surface like a guy on a Jet Ski.
Yes, People Still Read, but Now It's Social--Steven Johnson
Yes, People Still Read, but Now It's Social, Steven Johnson. The New York Times, 19 June 2010.

The Multifarious Book--Joseph Esposito
The book has multiple futures: print, digital versions that are not far from print, and digital forms for which there is no precise print equivalent. As good editors and publishers, it’s important to know the difference and to be able to explain to authors, software developers, librarians, and end-users why certain content belongs in one container and not another.
