The Gutenberg Parenthesis Research Forum

Interesting research forum...

"It is becoming increasingly likely that from the perspective of 
a not too distant future the period from the late Renaissance to 
the beginning of the 21st century will be seen as dominated and 
even defined by the cultural dominance of print -- not least in 
the form of the mass-produced book which is virtually synonymous 
with Western culture.  It accordingly seems appropriate to 
designate this period, roughly corresponding to the 
half-millennium from 1500 to 2000, 'the Gutenberg Parenthesis'."

Here's their position paper: http://bit.ly/cXCWbU
