Paper has a tangible and special quality about it that we won’t give up completely, as we absorb ourselves in ebooks and online courseware. Right? For many people working in an office or studying online courseware, staring at a computer screen all day is painful on the eyes.
Bill Thompson writes that the launching of the Sony Reader in the UK, “has sparked another round of frenzied speculation over the future of the printed book in a world of screens, networks and digital data.” Similar to the iLiad or the Kindle, the Reader is a small electronic book with a clear, high-resolution display using “electronic ink.” The display looks more like paper than a screen. Technology like the Reader holds vast implications for the pulp and paper industry, as well as for online courseware companies.
