How the Internet changed the way we read

How the Internet changed the way we read | Litteris |
Welcome to the age of hyper-information.
Robert Bolick's curator insight, January 10, 2016 6:53 PM

Having finished reading four books, binging on TV serials and movies and keeping up with email and other online over the holiday period 10 days, I know that the Internet has changed the way we read. But exactly how?  

Those four books were print. Another two on the go are digital. The movies were downloaded or streamed, and the TV serials were streamed.  I read and send almost no mail in print. Our filing cabinet at home is gone, reduced to three cardboard expandable files.

Jackson Bliss notes some of the types of additional reading that the Internet has brought us - including commentary like this. He questions whether there is much difference of quality between the Internet types and the traditional media types. But beyond the assertions, he doesn't probe closely or extensively the substantive nature of the changes (if there are any, which he calls into doubt). Worth a read though.

Neuromancer - William Gibson

Neuromancer - William Gibson | Litteris |
Neuromancer é um romance de ficção científica escrito por William Gibson em 1984, e vencedor dos prêmios Hugo, Nebula e Philip K. Dick. Foi o livro de estréia de Gibson e o primeiro da trilogia Sprawl.
William Gibson nunca pretendeu tornar-se o líder de um movimento, mas com a publicação de Neuromancer esse foi o papel que coube a ele. Se você viveu a ficção científica do meio dos anos 80 então tudo que você ouvia na época era o termo cyberespaço, termo criado por Gibson e base do movimento cyberpunk.
