The following blog post is alarming and will unnerve a lot of you.
My name is Jonny McCormick and I may not be as cool I once thought.
It has come to my attention that I may not be as cool, hip and trendy as I had once expected. Yes, it has taken me almost 23 years on earth to figure this out. I’m as shocked as you are about it, trust me. It’s totally knocked me for six today.
What prompted this revelation I hear you chant? I went to the library at University, sought out, checked out and read an actual printed version of a journal. I did not do what I normally do and just read it off the computer. Wow. Life. Changed.
Having tangible, touchable reading material is brilliant, there really is no substitute. That’s why I’m uncool (and yes, that is the only reason). In a world of iPad, Kindle and eBook reader I would still rather hold a book. There is something wonderfully accessible about the printed word…I just love it.
Long live the printing press.
