If someone suggested to you that we could and should do the same thing to the Magna Carta, the U. S. Constitution, Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Terry Southern’s Candy, or any other physically existing element of human culture, what would you say?
Update: Obviously I need to make myself more clear. Which elements of human culture which could otherwise also exist in concrete physical form would you be willing to relinquish to digital form only – and why, or why not? Feel free to cite specific works, entire genres, whatever you like.
