Craig Mod - Post Artifact Books & Publishing

Craig Mod has been busy again thinking very hard about the impact that digital is having, and will have, on books (HERE). 

A quotation;

"With the emergence and growing adoption of the Kindle and the iPad, publishers, writers, readers and software-makers have concerned themselves with shoehorning the old-media image of a book into new media. Everyone asks, ‘How do we change books to read them digitally?’ But the more interesting question is, ‘How does digital change books?’ And, similarly, ‘How does digital change the authorship process?"
He includes some thought provoking diagrams that illustrate his argument.
