Is Print Doomed

Love this article from Fast Company. It is a quick read it here.
“A blogger and a magazine exec square off. Is paper too one-way in an interactive world, or will the Web actually beathe new life into dead trees?” It’s Jeff Jarvis and John Griffin.
Tidbits:
“Print is not dead. Print is where words go to die.”
“Actually print is where words go to live–we’re still reading the ancient Greeks. On the other hand, I question the life span of blogs.”
“Break free of the shackles of media and ask: What are you, really?”

    The fun thing to do is push the evelope even further on this. In the final analysis it is not that print is doomed but that reading and writing are doomed. I teach a course on “post literacy.” The premise is that, eventually, literacy will displaced by a more powerful tool, capacity or capability. Print is so last few hundred years.
    Here’s the talk about post literacy I gave at the Ontario Library Association SuperConference last year.
