Matt Mitchell shared this fantastic link with me, from Wired. Hahaha, check it out.
There was a time when your choice of book told people who you were, or at least who you wanted to be. Or, barring that, who you wanted people to think you wanted to be. Having an e-reader doesn’t say anything but “I read books and have power outlets in my home.” (Both admirable qualities, to be sure.)
Luckily for venture capitalists, I have ideas. It’s time for the world of e-readers to diversify so people can make a statement with their choice of electronic word-delivery device.
