Online Publishing - A Short Comment
17 lies or Lie to me

What do you think about online publications? Do you prefer TV, radio, print or online?

The only thing that stops me hailing online publications as a gift from the gods is the fact I lack an internet-capable computer that I can take to the toilet/in the bath with me. I get all my "news" these days through the internet, mainly from the BBC website - something I can thank assorted LJ-jockeys for if truth be told.

About the only printed-text reading I do these days are reading-for-pleasure and tabletop rulebooks (and I have most of the ones I use regularly in a .pdf format, ssssh don't tell anyone).

I doubt that the online publication stuff will ever completely replace the book - there are too many things that make a book "special" that the internet lacks - but apart from "reading for pleasure" I think it's likely that the online stuff will continue to grow.

Heck, I even like to read the odd bit of fan-fiction, and there's a lot of very funny people out there who write for me and me alone (or so it seems) who wouldn't have a hope in hell of getting published.

Plus porn of course
