Readers and Readings in the Electronic Age

How does one read on-screen? Does the change in the support of texts mean that the contents of texts will change as well? What are the texts that will still be called 'books' once they are made available through the unified medium of screens?

Well, my only comment is that so far onscreen-reading has been associated with a lot of ass pain - since you have to spend incredible amounts of time in front of your huge monitor (on your sorry ass) to do any decent reading.

As to palm-readers and all those fancy portable gadgets, my guess is that these things are way too fragile and way too expensive to bother about. So the ass is still the seat of knowledge in the internet age so far.

It's not content - it's that ass again...
