    I don’t see this as bleak or scary, more as challenge! I love challenges.

    A pretty fun read. There will always be books, yes, but I think they will be much less common. I often wonder what we are doing to ensure we will be relevant in a future where owning something doesn’t matter. With electronic objects you stream what you want and you don’t need to own it. You certainly don’t need to go to a specific building on campus to find it.
