The ‘Future Book’ Is Here, but It’s Not What We Expected from Wired notes that despite the seeming certainty of predictions that digital technology would have by now revolutionized books by incorporating all kinds of interactive features, so far it hasn’t happened. Digital books haven’t changed much at all since their introduction more than 15 years ago. And they still haven’t supplanted the demand for traditional books which remains strong for the same reason that the design hasn’t changed since Gutenberg’s invention; the book blends form and function so perfectly that it nearly defies improvement. According to Wired, however, what has changed is the publishing industry itself and the ease with which an author can get her work into print.
