Is Print dead? Brockhaus stops printed edition.

Gutenberg was a great guy. He enabled billions of people to read what others had written. That was in in the 1450s. Today, on 13th of February 2008, publishing house Brockhaus announces the stop of their printed edition “The Brockhaus”. The reason: the supremacy of wikipedia online encyclopaedias does not allow the production of a printed edition any longer. Is that the historical event as it will be seen by many or is it just a normal reaction of one player within a dynamic market?
