The Social Space of Reading by Matthew Stadler

I found this recent interview with Matthew Stadler kind of reassuring because unlike a lot of writers Matthew Stadler has jumped into the so called “Social Web” completely and yet retains a sense of “the book” as a medium. There isn’t the either/or mentality that seems to go hand in hand with many writer’s assessment of digital media. In this interview I was struck by Matthew’s openness to new technology and his fondness rather than nostalgia for the old technologies of books and rooms where people can meet and cavort. A room is itself, I suppose, a technology, and far more social in most cases than the hottest chat room.
