Description
This book also begins with that wondrous first Information Technology and then moves on to tales about the wonders of the written word—great stories, many of them likely new to most readers. In them, you‘ll find all the backgrounds, foregrounds, premises, conclusions, and surprises that make up the best and most valuable books. This book also begins with that wondrous first Information Technology and then moves on to tales about the wonders of the written word—great stories, many of them likely new to most readers. In them, you‘ll find all the backgrounds, foregrounds, premises, conclusions, and surprises that make up the best and most valuable books. At sixty-four, I bring another full lifetime lived both at that exact moment where my experiences could straddle working in print shops and in the current digital eBook era.. My degree in human-computer interfaces in 1973 led to my appointment as adjunct professor at Benedictine University, where I built the world‘s first electronic library in 1988. You could walk into that library, and the first thing you‘d see was the computer asking if there were any books you wanted. You selected books from our early selections and then inserted a floppy disc. Then you were prompted to close the drive door, and you got your books. No waiting. No overdue fines. Never any lost books. You could search books using the SEARCH function on your own computer, import quotations into paper e-mails, etc., and copy the book.

Excerpt
Way back in the fifteenth century a man named Johann Gutenberg invented the ?printing press. More than 400 years passed before Ottmar Mergenthaler found a way in the late 1880s to mechanize that historic invention. Then, less than a century later – in the 1980s – digital printing displaced Mergenthaler’s wondrous Linotypes.
