Quote of the Day: On Print’s DurabilityPosted: September 23, 2010
“You know what’s great about printed books? [Slams a copy of the collected works of Erasmus against the chalk board] You can’t do this with your laptop.”
~Prof. Burke Griggs during my freshmen year history lecture. Sure, nearly a decade ago, but I’ll never forget it.
Moral of the story: stop saying print is dying – the nature of the media is changing but it is by no means a death knell for the printed word. Go buy a copy of Strunk and White to make up for your sins.
