It's just too easy to misread, as most of us, alas, have heard library
administrators say very much the same thing in dead flat seriousness.

If I had a nickel for every time I've heard that the paper journal is
becoming obsolete, I wouldn't have to come to work anymore.

Me? I think the technology of the codex has been around for nearly 2000
years, and will probably endure for a few more decades.

The views expressed by me are usually not those of UF (or of Hank Young,
for that matter)
