Nick Dunne, the protagonist in Gillian Flynn's new novel, "Gone Girl," was a New York magazine writer before magazines began "shuttering, succumbing to a sudden infection brought on by the busted economy." He was on the top of the world -- actually getting paid to write -- when suddenly, he laments, writers "were like women's hat makers or buggy-whip manufacturers."

I read those words on an e-book. And I wonder whether technology and innovation finally have come to the rescue.
