Kindle 2020

The smart guys over at Snarkmarket are thinking about how we'll be reading in 2020. I want to follow up on this later, but for now consider some of the questions they're asking:

• What kind of devices will we use to read? 
• What formats will be used to deliver documents? 
• What kinds of documents will be “read” - text, image, video, audio, hybrids? 
• How will documents be written and produced? 
• How will documents be bought, sold, and otherwise supported? 
• How will contributors be compensated? 
• How will reading work in different industries? 
 

They're hoping to do a presentation at South by Southwest Interactive. I hope it works out.
