Ebooks are the last scream – in Gronland and on the toilet unfit
The other day at the Tur: The analogue postman brings a pack with digital affinity content: an ebook. The eyes of colleague Harald start to light up. Background: Our Buro is deeply split. Between the appendages of the analog party and the other. Colleague Harald often belongs to the others, which is not bad, when the internet is not going again, on which the analogue party members are instructed. But: So now an ebook. From the company, which does not hurry Kienzle – from the taxi watches -, gray, something more than manifold grob, allegedly the contents of all crowd beer should be in it: Dostojewski’s guilt and SUNHER, Schillers Rauber, Goethe.
We make a test with the eBook to find out advantages and disadvantages against the abook (A like analog). So objective and neutral like only possible! The results in advance: They are twisted.
Point one: The eBook is largely unable to press as the simplest abook, flower blast between the sides to press dry. If you hit the ebook several times on the blatter of the Delphinium Grandiflorum (Vulgo: Knightspurmorn), so only a little consentless porridge remains back.
Point two: They are clogged between Nuuk and Kangerlussk on Gronland with the plane and have a subscription and string hand. So save your life through a small fire. Your neighbor with the eBook has already been refreshed, it does not burn.
Point three: You make your eBook in the otherwise empty book. It looks slice.
Point four: They take place like ubroad with the reclam booklet "Heidegger Martin: The origin of the artwork" with your eBook in a debate according to the partner. Follow: separation and long-term claims for damages.
Point FUNF: Edgar Wibeau in Ulrich Plenzdorf’s novel "The new sufferings of young W." is only in contact with Goethe on the toilet, because the ABOOK is also useful on the scenery. Colleague Harald refused in this regard to all tests.
Point six: You can also underline full sets on the screen of the eBook with a felt pen, but it does not really bring something.
Point seven: Although the eBook is Dostojewski and Schiller in it, important works of world literature such as the collected speeches of Nicolae Ceausescu are missing.
So far so bad, but spab aside. "Beyond the pictures" Is the title of the main work of Regis Deburay. He was once waxed Che Gueveras and consultants of the Socialist President Francois Mitterrand and is a professor in Lyon today. Debray – and here the bow to the eBook – is the criedery of mediology, a French version of those theory approaches, which provide the material of the media as of meaning and put in the center of view. Debray is thus in the tradition of famous Marshall McLuhan and the lesser-known theorist Harold Adam Annis or Joshua Meyrowitz.
They all address how the material form of the embassy can urge the effects of the Embassy. For example, the Bible as a handwritten copy was only accessible to the clergy. As a printed mass product but also the educated and with the knowledge monopoly of the church it was over. For Luther, the way to God does not lead more on the detour of the clergy, now the word of God can read everyone. Debray now expects the image and examines the interaction between material texture, impact and function of the medium. His thesis: Another one of the three sides of this reference context, otherwise the others.
In this sense, order to ask what it means that Dostojewski’s written work is now on the ebook to be reciprocated. This question is also interesting because so that the state of contemporary seminars, final work and even teaching residence. This in the long run, because as the previous media research shows, questions regarding the social impact of new media are caused by causal analytically accessible in view of the unuitable number of variables. Sometimes culture-critical considerations such as at the time of the advent of the television of Paolo Pasolini in the "Buccane" More information than empirical studies looking for effects that can be found only by long-term monitoring.
But what now means the emergence of the eBooks? It means: "People, buys old book!" and forget the gold system. Because we are on a turnturn from analogous to digital and in a non-distant future, the artifacts from the analog age be more valuable than precious metal and eBooks then be so common that they look old.
