Thats a good question. I guess he is from the classic "educational spirit" an the humboldt ideal. Well I am also very Humboldt-isch, however many of this people mismatch the paper book as glorification of the education ideal, and really oversee that new medias have as much education potential in them if used correctly. They think the world can only be rescued if we stick to the paper book, because the paper book is where education comes from.
I think we argued already in the other thread while this whole assumption is wrong. Its about texts we like, not paper. The same holds true with movies, people actually like the movies itself not the VCR.
