A MAC TONNIES MEMORIAL & 9 YEAR POST-MAC TIME CAPSULE
Certainly the 'Net could be leveled overnight -- either temporarily or (in the case of EMP) - somewhat permanently. In the latter case, I'd fear for the survival of books as well.In "Snow Crash", Stephenson makes a case for clay tablets being the most durable of records.In any case I *LIKE* books. Solid. Durable. Each one a door to somewhere/when/thing else.
Ah, books... guess it's kind of a tactile thing - they even smell good!Actually, Mac's comment came from one of our "apocalypse" discussions... in which we concluded that the survival of books depended upon small, private libraries - among them, mine and his... and yours, too - so, take good care of them! :-)
