The end of print publishing?

14th March 2012
Categories: futurology, publishing

The BBC announces today that Encylopaedia Britannica is going online-only, ending a 244 year print publishing run.

With some readers citing tablets, e-readers and phones as better ways to read books than from their dead tree equivalent, is this the beginning of the end? And what am I going to put on my bookshelves in 20 years' time?

You may think it unlikely, but back in the 70s would you have predicted the demise of the typewriter?
