On the value of the book: "The value of the book is not the physical product you hold. It is the creativity and information inside. This is what we need to concentrate on in the digital era."
On the future of the book: "I have no idea what the future of the book is and that's what's so exciting about it. Will the book as we know it survive? I don't know. And I don't necessarily care. What I care about it whether we will have better way to share information, to collaborate and to cooperate."
