Warner: Future Of Books

In McSweeney’s, James Warner has some silly fun with “The Future Of Books.” His prediction for 2080: A Golden Age of Informational Fluidity is a nice poke at Sven Birkerts and his followers.

For the benefit of those people at future-of-publishing panels—there's always one, for some reason—who insist it's really not about the text but the smell of the book, books will by this time be available exclusively as lines of fragrance.
