Overview

Ink into Bits is concerned with the impact and advantages of new technologies on human experiences from publishing, to education, to everyday recreational reading. Included is a bibliography, a list of recommended reading, and an appendix of statistical charts which show how various factors relating to electronic publishing have changed over the years. Ink into Bits is intended for students in courses on communication or technology in society, for students of library and information science, for librarians, for writers, and for book people of all kinds. It discusses the practical realities of new computer and communication technologies in non-technical terms, and avoids the hype that surrounds "futurology" and "technology prophecy." A readable introduction to the future of the word: where it will ever remain, and new areas where it will likely appear.
