Most recently there has much talk in contemporary America about 'change' but how much do you know or have heard of Tools of Change (TOC) --which to be most concise is about, how you/I will read as we talk 21st century and beyond. Yep! Its about how we evolve.
O'Reilly's TOC Conference came to New York City this week two thousand strong and its more than a ripple about reading.
Talk of change, and Tools of Change are here with us. The mantra, grab and embrace. That is the message from publishers who are encouraging you through different models of digital publishing to embrace their brand --getting the best choices: in E-book supply chain and much beyond what Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble can or will ever deliver. Believable? If you think digital and all that it makes possible, a resounding yes -- in time is the answer.
Consider for instance, this week, The Wall Street Journal reports that Sesame Plans E-Books for children. And what will that cover? A line of books for children 2-to 6 years old.
- Also featured at this week's TOC conference, MIRASOL displays. Considered the future of e-Readers they are available in: beautiful colors, fast paced videos and visibility in direct sunlight, among other things. They offer:
- Power Savings--which in comparison to existing display technologies are significant.
- Extended Usage Time--reduces energy consumption of display modules, thereby increasing the usage time between battery charges and usage time.
- Outdoor Viewable--Mirasol displays are usually bright and clear most often reflective in bright sunlight and most important as we talk and consider 'Green" lower CO2 emissions, as it reduces the number of battery recharge cycles, thereby extending battery life.
