I borrowed a library book the other day.
No big deal, you might say.
Thing is, I borrowed it on my Kindle.
And that IS a big deal.
Since the Great Library of Alexandria, knowledge dissemination through books has been a cornerstone of civilization.
Now, the ability to disseminate knowledge but not be constrained by the actual requirement to have a physical book (sure you need a Kindle, but that’s easier and cheaper for all of us…better to give 1 Kindle to every citizen than buy 10,000 books and put them in a library).
Felt like a watershed moment.
