Yesterday would have been William Shakespeare’s 451st birthday. He died when he was only 52 years old. Imagine how many more plays he could have written if he had lived to a ripe old age. He could not imagine that people would still be reading and performing his plays in 2015.
Will people still be reading my writing 400 years from now? What form will books take in 2415? We can’t imagine that any more than William Shakespeare could imagine his plays being on the TV or movie screens or being read on an e-reader.
