Interesting ideas...I think he is correct, in that we just don't know.  But *expect* that scholarly books will eventually be digitized, and in the process, the concept of the "book" will change.

Although directed at content marketing, these ideas translate into technical communications where users are trying to help each other find the best technical content. I totally agree that the fundamental way in which we communicate through content is shifting.
