Books are dead -- Long Live the eBook

eBOOKS by E. R. Crain, P.Eng.
The Future Is Already Here


I wrote my first technical paper in 1964, two years after garduating as an electrical engineer. I prepared and gave my first in-housse course in 1966 at GSI, and started doing courses for clients beginning in 1978.

In that era, everything was done by typewriter, drafting instruments, lettering guides, glue, and Scotch tape. Across the years the presentation materials evolved through "overheads" (8.5 x 11 inch copier films), to 35 mm slides, to computer image projectors. The course Reference Manuals moved from cheap copiers to expensive copiers to eBooks (eTexts) in electronic format that can be delivered by email. Fifty years of technology advances -- and I still use some Scotch tape when needed.
