Versatile author Tanya Lee Stone (whose honors include the 2010 Sibert for Almost Astronauts) blogged a ominous question: Will the Internet replace nonfiction books?

I posted a comment saying I don't think so but (like almost every other form of entertainment and education) nonfiction will have to evolve to have a presence in the digital domain. I look forward to the as-yet unthinkable.

Tanya posted a follow-up partially in response to my comment.

Nonfiction authors often write about pioneers. Now it's our turn to do some pioneering.
