    It still amazes me that I can loll about here in Sidi Ifni and yet get up to the minute input like your podcast of the Future of Reading panel. Particularly liked your introduction with its sharp, informed opinions. I didn’t find the last speaker quite as haughty as you did, but perhaps that’s because I was only listening. Did indeed find it odd that the supposedly neutral moderator seemed so favorable to the Nook in his comments.
