Douglas Adams On The History Of Books

We’re just past the anniversary of Douglas Adams’ birthday. Adams loved his technology, and this audio, recorded back in 1993 covers his predictions as to where books were going.


The video’s part of a recently held competition by The Literary Platform, but the audio’s where the real gold is. Sure, Adams’ use of “Powerbook” dates it a little, but the core ideas are absolutely present in today’s Kindles and iPads. [The Literary Platform via Geekosystem]
