Future of texts

It seems that people will loose the ability to read, comprehend and remember long texts soon, the question now is - is it possible to deliver very complex messages without texts?
The critical issue is to design a flow of information into human brain which will both allow to scan though extremely large amounts of data and deduct new meanings. Text/speech is indeed quite slow channel for that, vision might be reasonable.

Visualization seems relevant if we want to keep human intelligence instead of replacing it with pure computer intelligence.  Works like LargeVis

Visualizing Large-scale and High-dimensional Data

are much more important then. See also the LargeVis project on github.
