Books, libraries and technology in 25 image quotes
The technology is changing books, the way we read, and the role of institutions playing a crucial role in education and learning.
Should we be afraid of technology? No. But we should use it very carefully, and not let it overwhelm us. As Christian Lous Lange once remarked: “technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master.”
Books, libraries, and technology are the essence of what Ebook Friendly is about. These three elements shape the future of reading, not the addictive smell of a vintage book.
We have to keep up with technology to preserve books. We have to change books if we want books to change us.
The worst thing to happen would be to keep books in a form invented by Gutenberg 600 years ago, while everything else is changing at the speed of the Internet connection.
