In an article in the LA Times, Beau Friedlander opines that “… The instant knowledge provided by the Web is invaluable, as is the deeper communion provided by books.”

“The Internet is a volume in our library,” Ackerman says, “a colorful, miscellaneous, and serendipitous one — but not a replacement for books, and certainly not an alternative to spending time in the world and just paying attention to things.” Moulitsas believes it’s the future, and the old guard needs to get with the times.

For the time being, both of them are right.
