Ink into Bits is concerned with the impact and advantages of new technologies on human experiences from publishing, to education, to everyday recreational reading. Included is a bibliography, a list of recommended reading, and an appendix of statistical charts which show how various factors relating to electronic publishing have changed over the years. Ink into Bits is intended for students in courses on communication or technology in society, for students of library and information science, for librarians, for writers, and for book people of all kinds. It discusses the practical realities of new computer and communication technologies in non-technical terms, and avoids the hype that surrounds "futurology" and "technology prophecy." A readable introduction to the future of the word: where it will ever remain, and new areas where it will likely appear.
Charles T. Meadow is Professor Emeritus at the Faculty of Information Studies, University of Toronto. He is the author of Making Connections: Communications Through the Ages (2002) and Messages, Meaning and Symbols: The Communication of Information (2006), both published by Scarecrow.
