Quote of Note | Tim O’Reilly

“I think we’re seeing a transformation of the marketplace [for books]. The biggest challenge is not the death of print; it’s the question of how books will change. Take the map: The print map has largely gone away, and online mapping has become the norm. In the process, what we expect from maps has changed: They include directions, nearest gas stations, nearby merchants. The book’s format will change, sure, but so will the very form.”

Tim O’Reilly, founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media, in the April 11 issue of Forbes
