Computers & Writing

There is an astonishing wealth of information on the devices we carry around with us – a wealth that should be celebrated.  To me, I would prefer to read a single article or book with the kind of deep, measured concentration that seems to come more naturally with print.

A printed book stays on your shelf, and can be bookmarked by scribbling important missives in the margins or important passages can be highlighted; a printed book can be flipped through and shared.  I know, I know – these things are all possible with digital devices and they may come naturally to some people – just not to me.
