I’ve always maintained that print isn’t dying – at least, not all print. Rather, that information which is better suited to online is moving there, while readers still prefer some content in print format.
Clive Thompson recently reported on a case showing the perceived value of print – especially in terms of its staying power. James Bridle of booktwo.org has archived two years of his tweets into a hardcover book. After all, he explains, Twitter will inevitably be replaced by another tool, and he doesn’t want to lose all the thoughts he poured into it.
I have to say, I’m inspired to do the same. What do you think?
