Newsweek (1995) on ebooks
PatrickLacroix tweeted about a blog post that discusses an article from Newsweek in 1995.
The Internet? Bah!
Hype alert: Why cyberspace isn’t, and will never be, nirvana
The Newsweek article was written by the well-know astronomer Clifford Stoll. In general he thought that the internet would be just a hype, and would never become something useful.
To stay on topic: he also made some remarks about ebooks, although that word wasn't used.

Thanks for the link. I read the BoingBoing entry when it came out (and Silicon Snake Oil when it first came out) but didn't notice Cliff Stoll's response on the boinger.
