Welcome To America, Thank You!

This is not entirely eBook related, but it does touch on why newspapers are dropping dead and why some fiction -- and most mass entertainment -- is such utter crap.

And it's an excellent essay that really, really needs to be read by as many people as possible:

When we live in this reality where a redhead white woman can throw down about Tupac with a hip hop Asian kid who can walk into a bookstore and get briefed about the proper pronunciation of Tananarive from a hipster white guy who first learned about the Beast of London from a Chicano low-rider. It's a crying shame.
