Price depression in eBook publishing will force traditional print into the realm of high art. Books will be fetishistic items for connoisseurs. But what will everyday book-lovers do? How will we continue to read and enjoy a life of the mind?
Libraries. Having spent a week in the Netherlands talking with some of the most ambitious, innovative librarians, I’m convinced that the eBook debate between libraries and publishers is superfluous. It’s based on an antiquated model of production and consumption. Librarians have more power in the discussion than they realize.
If the digital space itself is a category, it’s becoming Filene’s Basement. This smells like trouble.
