Long form thrives?

And Macworld has a piece which argues against the meme that the new technologies are destroying our ability to read long-form texts:

While the Cassandras spend their time writing good books and long magazine articles about the phenomenon, something interesting is taking place. Long-form writing—both fiction and non-fiction—is flourishing. And the iPad is giving the format a new platform on which to thrive.

I happen to agree… although feel free to step around the iPad-centric spin and just accept that screens can do what paper does 🙂
