Excited about Interactive books

18 Jun

This clip was posted on TED. “TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.” As stated in About TED of the TED site. Since then it has grown and is a site worth visiting with a mission being ‘Spreading ideas.’

Currently, I am fascinated with how technology and software impact on the way we read. There appears to be a convergence of print, audio, visual and interactivity that is incredibly exciting. Investigating what is out there is not only interesting but challenging to someone who loves physical books. Particularly as a great deal of the innovations appear to be driven by demand. As a librarian in training the implications are significant and worth pondering. I certainly need to embrace the information landscape and its transformations. Right now there is much to be excited about!
