eFuture
E-read all about it
The future might already be here. Microchips have transformed the music business (iTunes) and film and TV (DVDs). 'It's only a matter of time,' says Paul Carr, editor in chief of web-to-print publishing house the Friday Project, 'before this same type of functionality comes to the book world. The moment someone invents a portable electronic reader that looks [and reads] like paper and that allows books to be downloaded on to it, there will be an explosion of e-books.'

When that invention arrives, and from where, is anyone's guess, but companies such as Sony and Philips are striving for the big breakthrough. As Carr points out, 'digital time' is faster than 'normal time'. In 50 years, the industry is likely to experience the equivalent of 1,000 years of technological change. This, from a purist perspective, has already begun. Not since Gutenberg has technology so transformed the way we receive the written word. Text has already become electronic in so many ways: email, websites, blogs, CD-Roms and text messaging.
It is not often you see an article about ebooks in mainstream media worth reading, but here is one. This is a well-written article written by a journalist that knows his subject.
