“The book is the greatest interactive medium of all time. You can underline it, write in the margins, fold down a page, skip ahead, and you can take it anywhere.”

Michael Lynton, American businessman

He also said:  "I’m a guy who doesn’t see anything good having come from the Internet, period. [The internet has] created this notion that anyone can have whatever they want at any given time. It’s as if the stores on Madison Avenue were open 24 hours a day. They feel entitled. They say, ‘Give it to me now,’ and if you don’t give it to them for free, they’ll steal it.”

I agree about the book, and I understand what he means about the Internet, but the Internet has surely been a great invention. Dare I say, on a par with the wheel?
