Unlocking the eBook


Craig Mod writes for Aeon on ebooks’ technological stagnation:

…it was a stark reminder that pliancy of media invites experimentation. When media is too locked down, too rigid, when it’s too much like a room with most of the air sucked out of it, stale and exhausting, the exploration stops. And for the intersection of books and digital there’s still much exploration to be had.
