This blog post by Seth Godin created a bit of conversation about the author’s thoughts on ebooks, his thoughts on bookshops, video shops, and libraries, and the factor that someone still pays for ebooks, platforms, and access. It makes us think again about the changing spectrum of library seen as holder of books, and the transition between access point to other forms of medium be it via our webpage, or enabling access at our physical location of library. Books are still one of the tools we use. As the author suggests when you look around, particularly on a plane or on public transport, there are less physical books in use, and more electronic devices in use.
Does the #FutureLibrary still have a place for books?
