The following thoughts come in the afternath of reading the article entitled New Look for Bradbury's 'Fahrenheit 451' from Publisher's Weekly http://www.publishersweekly.com/article/CA6654436.html?industryid=47140/. As a lover of Ray Bradbury's work, as well as that of George Orwell and other futuristic authors, I pose a few questions.
If we really read Bradbury, Orwell [et.al]...
Would we be so quick to put our words into an electronic format which is so easily changeable.
Would we be so quick to weed children's books because of a "lead paint" problem.
Would we forsake our personal reading time for time with social media.
Would we continue to call ourselves information technologists, rather than the noble term of librarian.
I hate to be a bother, but I just had to ask.
