Sven Birkerts Treading the Same Old Ground

Gutenberg Elegies, countless articles, and this one to add to Sven Birkerts's dismal croaking about the fate of reading.  I may say that like I don't care for what he has to say, but I enjoy every word and I'm trying to figure whether he is a Cassandra, or just plain wrong, or somewhere in between (methinks the last of these for which the first was made).
