Publishing, Ebooks, and Amazon

Here are some more articles about upheavals in the publishing industry.

"Publishing's Ecosystem on the Brink" examines the dangers of monopoly.  Amazon has too much control over what can be sold and for what price -- which influences what publishers and writers can do, and what readers can get.

"Franzen and the Ebook Bubble" discusses ebooks vs. paper books.  Bear in mind that while ebooks have many advantages, they are NOT durable.  At all.  Information stored only in electronic format is extremely vulnerable to loss, and tends not to last very long.
