Computer literacy vs. book literacy
Joanna: After visiting a local library (in quest of one of the only extant video copies of Madame Butterfly in the Pittsburgh area, at least ones available to desperate TA's!), I mused on the room layout. Multiple computer terminals occupied the center of the rooms. The books for the most part were along the edges of the rooms. I was one of the only patrons looking at books, most of the others were sitting at computers. A few entries ago DiBer mused on the differences between manuscript and print cultures in the 17th century. I wonder how people several hundred years from now will view computer vs. book literacy.
