This is a example of the way people changing their way of obtaining new knowledge and information from paper to digital, as they are using laptop to type notes rather than using paper and pen.
These changes may have break a brand ground for people reading books online, and to become e-readers. From the reading of “Institute for the future of the book” I can see that publishing books online creates many opportunities for people viewing informations, because it is a keep renewing process which it offers e-readers different resources information from the world wide. Also it is more faster then the hand copy in paper, which is more recycle. This is a very positive direction for people and children to learn new things.
From mo own perspectives, publishing process from paper to digital brought me the interesting of reading books. Because i can stay online making connection with friends while I reading from the Internet. it is very convenience and easy. It replace the heavy books and bring a new stage of publishing which promote the development of times.
