Dear Erol, Jerry and all:

Jerry wrote of the dynamics of the internet on publishing, including:

: It may be a while, though, before we can buy Eiland and Eiland V1.0.

In fact, it may be that some kinds of books will, during our lifetimes at least, be printed and art books are probably that group.

A couple of decades ago there were dire predictions for the future of movies and movie theaters as the result of the dominance of television. Movies are stronger (not necessarily better) than ever but theater has suffered.

Books possess qualities of civility and discipline that the internet and other electronic technologies lack.
