Knowledge, Learning, Community
It seems to me I remember people telling my that predictions about the end of books, or the collapse of stores that sell books, were way off in the distance future, if they were going to ever happen at all. Of course, today, everybody predicted that bookstores will close and that reading will be done digitally. Just like everyone today is predicting that the traditional school and university will be replaced by dynamic online alternatives and that numerous institutions of learning will close their doors. Yes, 20 years from now, everyone will be saying they were predicting this.
