Borders just announced that they are going to offer on-demand printing of
books. This will in due course put an end to publishing as we know it. What
next? Printing books at home on your computer? Instant availability of
classics on Internet coupled with the writers bypassing the publishing
houses -- anyone can publish on Internet at almost very little cost -- the
power is going to shift from the publishing houses to individuals. It would
be interesting to see how many profitable publishing houses survive the
current revolution in communication.
