20 Things I Learned About Browsers and the Web
Shiny Google People promote their vision life, the universe, html5, and everything in the guise of a children's book. More myopic than Microsoft, heavier-handed than a railway baron, more condescending than Bill Buckley. It's all about revision and Manifest Destiny, wrapped up in a shameless rip of Dr Seuss figures. Sure, it shows what they can do with html5, but so would an html version of The Wasteland. Meh.

if:book: a clean well-lighted place for books
"The purpose of this new set of notes is to expand the thinking beyond how a specific text is presented or interacted with. Reading (and writing) do not happen only at the level of the individual work. There is a broad ecology of behaviors, activities and micro-environments that surround each work and our relationship to it -- how things come to be written, how we choose what to read, how we make the purchase, how we share our experience with others. Currently (i.e. toward the end of age of print), that ecology is defined by agent/editor mechanisms of acquisition, sharp delineation between authors and readers, top-down marketing, heavy reliance on big mainstream media to get the word out, the bookshelves that make our books part of our daily life, bookstores and -- yes -- Amazon."

Birkerts - Resisting the Kindle - The Atlantic (March 2, 2009)
I see in the turning of literal pages—pages bound in literal books—a compelling larger value, and perceive in the move away from the book a move away from a certain kind of cultural understanding, one that I’m not confident that we are replacing, never mind improving upon.

extraordinary book sculpture
"Dettmer's sculptures invite us to think about deeply-held taboos around the sanctity of books as objects; a conversation that recurs - especially in the context of e-readers - around discussion of digitized text."

if:book: time out and some of what went into it
Encountering books - Updike is talking about a certain kind of reading, the kind that is best suited to the sorts of things he writes: novels, short stories and criticism. But it would be a mistake to apply this as a universal principle for all books,
