The line between book and Internet will disappear – O’Reilly Radar

Honestly think this is inescapable. Think in truth it has been pretty obviously the future for some time. O’m not sure it will come quickly though, more likely very slowly and in fits and starts. I also expert print to persist though and I’d not be surprised to see ebooks hanging around too!

Many people don’t want books to become part of the Internet, because we just don’t know what business would look like if they were.

This will change, slowly or quickly. While the value of the digitization of books for readers has primarily been, to date, about access and convenience, there is massive and untapped (and unknown) value to be discovered once books are connected. Once books are accessible in the way well-structured websites are.
