The Eyes Have It

First, if you've read Neil Gaiman's Coraline and you have the urge to look like the other mother... here you go. Thanks to one of Neil Gaiman's tweets.

And, of course, today is the launch of the iPad. I think I'll like it. We'll see. But I was intrigued by the second photo in this launch blog. It's great to see the liberal arts and technology engaged. I see a fantastic future for eBooks. I already find myself flicking through a book unconsciously looking for the search button. But I wonder how long we'll keep speaking of turning a page? A little like the return key on the computer keyboard or the rewind button on a DVD remote control, how long will the vocabulary of the previous technology linger in the new?
