Books are essential for learning knowledge and such learning must be through a process of science. Books need not be romanticized. Books reflect human society and thus its biases too. However when it comes to technology that have basic underpinning to science and scientific methods, we are good to gain knowledge from it and share it by expressing the learned knowledge in various forms, if possible using computer and computing art as tools. Thus to be creative, learning, unlearning, skilling, collaborative effort(study circles ?) from community are necessary.
