Waters has created an answer to his own question, one which I bet some of you have asked yourselves: “How come the tech world can put a man on the moon and I can’t sign an eBook?” His solution is Autography LLC, which will debut at BookExpo America its system for digitally signing e-books with something like a Pogo Sketch stylus.
