eBooks are like air

One thing about eBooks that most people haven’t thought much is that eBooks are the very first thing that we’re all able to have as much as we want other than air.

Michael S. Hart the inventor of the ebook and the founder of Project Gutenberg, passed away last Tuesday, September 6th.

I think I’ve been a bigger fan of ebooks than I am now.

When I was in university, I really thought that ebooks were the answer to universal access to education. As time has passed on, I think the fact that they are as available as air reduces their value.
