The presence of technology in our lives have radically impacted how we have engaged with it in our day-to-day activities, including the act of reading.  This session will discuss the opportunities and threats of technology-assisted reading, explore how evolving consumer demands have impacted creators, and analyse if we should rethink the notion of what it means to read.
