I didn't even have to read the rest of the intro. I clicked on 451! According to the big book of paper the flash point of paper is actually 450 degrees though. Ray Bradbury says: I don't care science geek.

One of the things I worry about with digital media is that you wouldn't have to burn the books. Just make the readers incompatible. I've already got floppy disks I can't read neatly stacked and waiting.

450 just doesnt roll off the tongue as well.. poetic license! In a post apocalyptic world digital media wont burn very well and you'll end up cold. There is always two sides to the sword eh?
