A response is presented to McKenzie Wark's views on the place of literature in contemporary society and the impact of emerging technoculture on literate culture. It is suggested that printed texts are still in demand even amid the advent of electronic books, and it would be premature to critically assess what is beyond literate culture at this stage.
