Negroponte says the book is dead…
I often say that making predictions is a fool’s game, and I think Negroponte hasn’t got a 100% record – but the gist of Being Digital rings true a decade and a half on. So when he chants my mantra at the Technomy conference and gives a timeframe, I gotta link to it:
“People will say ‘no, no, no’ — of course you like your libraries,” Negroponte said.
“It’s happening. It not happening in 10 years. It’s happening in 5 years,” he said.
