The Textual Condition?

This article helped me gain a better grasp of the changing literature world. A portion of this article discusses the idea that if pieces of literature are archived on a technological device, if disks somehow becomes dismantled or unreadable, it will somehow be recovered. Well I wish we had this back in the day when I lost everything. When I think about losing all of the content in my books, I find myself wishing we had a way to restore it. But also is it really the same? While the content might be restored, does it still hold significance without the binding and the actual tangible book? The question of materiality vs. content.
