Read Where I Am contains visionary texts about the future of reading
and the status of the word. We read anytime and anywhere. We read of
screens, we read out on the streets, we read in the office but less
and less we read a book at home on the couch. We are, or are
becoming, a different type of reader. The question remains which
shape will it take and what experience does one want? To answer all
these (and other) questions we have asked people from different
backgrounds, subject to the aforementioned changes, to think about
I Read Where I Am collects 82 diverse observations, inspirations and
critical notes by journalists, designers, researchers, politicians,
philosophers and many others.
* How will we grapple with compressed narratives and the fluid
bombardment of text?
* What are the dialectics between image and word?
* How will our information machines generate new reading cultures?
* Can reading become a live, mobile social experience?
