Scrolling forward : making sence of documents in the digital age

We are surrounded by documents of all kinds, from receipts to letters, business memos to books, yet we rarely stop to reflect on their significance. Now, in this period of digital transition, our written forms as well as out reading and writing habits are being questioned and transformed by new technologies ad practices. What is the future of the book? Is paper about to disappear? With the Internet and World Wide Web, what will happen to libraries, copyright and education? Starting with a simple deli lunch receipt, SCROLLING FORWARD examines documents of all kinds from the perspectives of culture, history, and technology in order to show how they can work and what they say about us and the values we carry into the new age.

  • "We are surrounded daily by documents of all kinds--letters and credit card receipts, business memos and books, television images and web pages--yet we rarely stop to reflect on their significance. Now, in this period of digital transition, our written forms as well as our reading and writing habits are being disturbed and transformed by new technologies and practices. Potentially unsettling questions arise: What is the future of the book? Is paper about to disappear? With the Internet, what will happen to libraries, copyright, education? What will become of literature and journalism? What does all this mean for me, my livelihood, my world? An expert on information and written forms and a former researcher for the document pioneer Xerox, Levy masterfully navigates these concerns, offering reassurance while sharing his own excitement about many of the new kinds of documents that are emerging. He demonstrates how today's technologies, particularly the personal computer and the World Wide Web, are having analogous effects to past inventions, such as paper, the printing press, writing implements, and typewriters, in shaping how we use documents and the forms those documents take. - Publisher."@en
