“‘You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture,’ Ray Bradbury once said. ‘Just get people to stop reading them.'”

In follow-up to my last post, in which I liken the digital age of producing books to the disintegration of the newspaper industry, here is an excellent article from the Christian Science Monitor about the ramifications (and potential dangers) of devices such as Amazon’s Kindle.  This article was brought to my attention by DGLM’s Michael Bourrett in his blog post this week.

BTW – isn’t it interesting how, in this day and age, we can liken just about ANY problem or point of concern to the economical meltdown in progress?  (Read the Christian Science Monitor article linked above to see what I mean.)
