Containerless Content

Jeff Jarvis just published a visionary piece, “the last presses” (tip of hat to my new colleague JD). That the future will favor content over containers seems obvious, yet I share Jeff’s concern that we in the U.S. may be slow to realize how rapidly the shift from paper to digital stands to happen, once it really starts in earnest. Of course we have cheap trees, cheap gas, superhighways, and big-box Barnes&Nobles to lull us into complacency.
