Oh Dear! It Looks Far Too Complicated! It Will Never Catch On!
Hi! C.M.,The story was interesting and the video...funny!Thanks, for sharing!DeeDee ;-D
the video is funny-- I fear that in 50 years kids won't know what a book is-- with Kindle and computers and audio books and so on... I refuse to get any of those-- love my books too much
The video would be amusing if it was not scary for what the future might portend. I doubt if we will get there, and think die hard book lovers will resist the digitisation of everything.Increasingly technology seems to help isolate the individual from the community he / she belongs to, nothwithstanding the virtual connections.I thought the red phone box was a great idea, very heart warming to see the queue outside the phone box.
Heh, good point.
tony: The time consumed by people watching tv, I sometimes wonder.dd: Thanks for stopping by.layers: There's nothing like a real book, especially the older ones with leather covers and real bindings that hold up.anil p: Yes, the more society separates people, the less likely to interact, to be sure. There will always be those outside the box who do both.artS: Thanks.
love this. hope it catches on big time.
tom: Funny, I just heard a story this morning about some colleges not producing yearbooks anymore. The dominoes are starting to fall ; (
Michael, those pictures of the 'new libraries' around the UK there are really priceless, and I've linked these to my colleague Allan, who lives in Kendal. This has been a tough week for me, but all is well now, and I regret coming to this very special post this late. I got a quick out of the 'Quiet please' sign too, but some of the respondants are quite right to cite community spirit.The video almost reminded me of a comical "NAME OF THE ROSE." Ha!
sam: Oh yes, NOR for sure. With $$$ being tight around the states, we may have to do this too, one day. There's already a group called Book Crossing that has people exchanging books around the world.
