Yet another article about the decline of books because fo the rise of technology. However, the focus on the world of academia vs. economics and publishing techniques is more intriguing. I can relater to the change in and around universities because I am currently part of one. I am immersed in this specific culture, so I can see the points that the author makes more clearly. I agree that course work has changed. This class for instance has us reading articles and doing blog posts, rather than reading books and writing multiple-page, well thought out papers.
