Someone out there is coining the word "blook" to refer to printed books that archive or are a descendant in some way from a blog. Since Lulu, who is sponsoring a blooker contest, used my "blook" here as an example in their contest announcement, I guess I have to enter, huh? While the contest is obviously a clever way to market themselves and perhaps create a new product category, my whole experience with Lulu left me quite satisfied.
I can't emphasize this enough to those of you who may be younger than I am and have lived through fewer generations of computing technology: Do not count on the digital storage of today being accesable or easily readable 20 years from now. If you have something you want to make sure your kids can read when they get older, back it up on paper.
