Fiction writer Dawes Green was on Studio360 on Saturday night and he made mention of how people have changed since he last published a novel 14 years ago:

(I slightly lie: that quote above is from a Publishers Weekly interview, via Literary License blog, but it was close enough to what he said on the radio)
