Seth's Blog: An end of books

Seth's Blog: An end of books | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Books, those bound paper documents, are part of an ecosystem, one that was perfect, and one that is dying, quickly. Ideas aren’t going away soon, and neither are words.

 

From Seth, "Is it traitorous to my tribe to write these words? I'm not arguing that we should push the ecosystem out the door, but I am encouraging us to not spend too much time trying to save it. First, it's a losing battle, but more important, we have bigger opportunities right in front of us."

Karen Bonanno's insight:

Some challenge thoughts here to consider or is Seth stating the bleeding obvious???
