Where is all the reading material?



"In 2002, the information produced would have filled 37,000 Library of Congresses! .01% was on paper!"

What does this mean for education? Do we spend more than .01% of our time focused on paper based reading? What should we be doing instead?

We need to change the stigma that book reading is real reading and electronic reading is not. It is quickly becoming the opposite!

From this study by UC Berkeley's School of Information Management and Systems: http://www2.sims.berkeley.edu/research/projects/how-much-info-2003/execsum.htm#summary

Head nod to Mike W. for sharing this fact with me via his blog at http://edinatech.blogspot.com/
