    From a reader/citizen's perspective, electronic publishing can never carry the collective history of our brains. A download hasn't the physical volume, you can't stick a bookmark its pages, dogear ten references, underline a word in pencil, make the work a part of your consciousness as readers have forever filled their menageries. As a designer, the kindle and ipad reek beyond comprehension. I'm certain that most users won't mind perusing generic pages on lcd screens, and that widows will garner a new nickname and stature (see proud apple pressphoto above). No longer will people look at colorful gradations of spines in libraries and be illuminated by their friends' sensibilities. This isn't being nostalgic. E-publishing disregards the material magic (both verbal and visual) that is held when you pick up a book or magazine or newspaper. I know that this is preaching to the choir wearing the same AIGA uniform, but this junk is depressing...
