  • I do most of my reading while sitting on a train (without power plugs and net connectivity). I prefer books too because
    • they don't run out of power just when you almost find what you need
    • they aren't full of references to other books that you haven't dowloaded
    • I have a visual-type memory, ie. I can remember the context in which I saw the information - it's no help to be able to remember that it was "on the upper right of the monitor, just above the use.perl.org frame"

    OTOH it is much faster to search for something in a text-file - which does'nt help in those cases where the documentation is carefully strewn acroos a large number of files...
