Vegetal and mineral memory: The future of books

:: While somewhat off the scitech-beaten path, here is an interesting essay on the future of books:

    "The city of Alexandria played host on 1 November to the renowned Italian novelist and scholar Umberto Eco, who gave a lecture in English, on varieties of literary and geographic memory, at the newly opened Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Al-Ahram Weekly publishes the complete text of the lecture."
BTW, Geoff is still alive, but has been busy for two weeks taking possession of and working on his house. He'll return next week.
