"Craig Mod has a fascinating article for Aeon, talking about the unfortunate
stagnation in digital books. He spent years reading books almost exclusively in
ebook form, but has gradually moved back to physical books, and the article is
a long and detailed exploration into the limits of ebooks today -- nearly all
of which are not due to actual limitations of the medium, but deliberate
choices by the platform providers (mainly Amazon, obviously) to create closed,
limited, DRM-laden platforms for ebooks."
