Peter Kafka: Not as Pumped as Stephen King

Link to Kafka's February 9 Media Memo post, "Kindle 2.0 Arrives — Just 9 Years After The First e-Books".

Whether Amazon’s Kindle is a big hit or a modest one, we’re probably going to have to wait some time before digital books are a mainstream reality.

These digital revolutions always take longer than they should — just ask the music business, which sells a product that is already delivered in digital form, yet derives just 20% of its revenue from digital products — a full nine years after the original Napster. Don’t plan on ripping down your bookshelves just yet.

Evolution, not so many words.
