Quote for the Day 17 February 2005: Publishing

I found it quite amusing to find that the quote printed in my diary for yesterday/today was Marshall McLuhan's famous line that
"Gutenberg made everybody a reader: Xerox make everybody a publisher"
Obviously, when we are all here blogging furiously through the Internet, McLuhan's pithy comment illustrates that sometimes a remark can lose its significance. The world moves on, but the one-line quotations keep being trotted out: should we lay to rest now outdated quotations?
