Issuu / Ampersand

Issuu is an online library which converts uploaded pdfs to virtual books... Which makes me wonder: the printed book is an object which allows random access and unlimited resolution. The virtual book only allows limited random access and legibility. Why are people still using the book analogy in the online medium? Stop flipping through virtual pages. Let's either really exploit the digital media or read more printed books.
