Here’s to the small print: From my Scrapbook 2010


























One of the strange by-products of the digital revolution that we are going through at the moment is that no one seems to know how big anything should be.

Newspapers went through a convulsive readjustment of dimensions a few years back – led, of course, by this one. Computers and televisions seem to want to be as big as possible in terms of screen size, and simultaneously almost non-existent in terms of depth and weight. One of the biggest question marks hanging over Apple’s forthcoming iPad – which the publishing industry is hoping will trigger its own “iPod moment” – seems to be that of the weird inbetween-ness of its dimensions, halfway between phone and laptop.
