I think this is a very true account of the changing trends in medical education.
I expect we will soon have a new batch of Authors of medical "textbooks" via professional blogging.Though, I suspect we will need ONE authoritative and comprehensive printed Textbook on every subject for offline reference

I find that text books, while possibly not as current as an electronic text, are much more user friendly. It's so much easier to flip through a textbook than through an electronic "book". Additionally, I often stumble on useful information while thumbing through a book looking for something else. Serendipitious knowledge can stimulate sudden flashes of insight that often prove invaluable. I love the internet and I am not a technological Luddite, but I think the predicted demise of textbooks is a shame.
