The New Age of the Book
By Robert Darnton (from 1999!)
which begins "Marshall McLuhan's future has not happened. The Web, yes; global immersion in television, certainly; media and messages everywhere, of course. But the electronic age did not drive the printed word into extinction [...]'

which reminded me of the brilliant
The future of the book by G. Nunberg

both of which relate to compare with Matt's latest interconnected piece about the nature of the web as an oral medium

which in turn got me thinking about the cluetrain - and the importance of *real* voices
