We were just having a discussion at work (where our main focus is online) about how people prefer to read information and it got me to thinking and canvassing other opinions. Do you prefer to get information online, on paper (professionally printed or from web), in person, by phone? Do you research shopping online or just go into a store? Do you assume a store's website has its entire range or a newspaper's website its entire contents? While I shop in a physical store much of the time (I like the immediacy of taking things home), I generally look online rather than trudging round a mall/high street. Similarly, I flick through websites rather than catalogues. I read newspapers online (less clutter and recycling to do at home), particularly those where they update during the course of the day. I do still read books since ebooks still seem awkward but I'd imagine that if an ebook reader and content was as easy as an iPod and iTMS, I'd be early in line (much more useful than a video player!). And when I think how much shelf space I saved by putting CDs in storage, my flat would seem twice as big without the books! Workwise, I like using the intranet to get info rather than having lots of memos lying around the desk. But I have colleagues who print off their emails to make notes on them before they reply, let alone memos. So... are you a digital or a paper information junkie?
