A Brief History of Textbooks, or, Why Apple's 'New Textbook Experience' Is Actually Revolutionary
by Megan Garber
I would call this not only revolutionary (paradigm-shift) but also evolutionary (the digital person).
Plus, it is super-green. Think of all the trees that won't be turned into pulp for paper, and all the energy expended dealing with the mass. Remember how heavy textbooks were to carry back and forth from school. Well, they have to shipped and stored, too. Lots of energy is involved that will not longer be required.
BTW, the text book industry is a two billion a year operation. It's going to be transformed, too.
