A Video Interlude: The Last Bookshop

Filed under: A Video Interlude — Rich Adin @ 5:45 am

One of the blogs that I read every day is Nate Hoffelder’s The Digital Reader. Today’s visit to his blog led me to the below video: The Last Bookshop. (Thanks, Nate.)

Although a long video at 20+ minutes, it is well worth watching, especially for us editors and authors. It shows a dystopian future, and, unfortunately, in a quick — very fleeting —  mention, it makes Amazon the villain, which is unfair to Amazon. The villain could have as easily been Google or any number of megacorporations involved in the world of books. Regardless, the video should be watched because although unlikely, this is a possible future.
