President of The Future of Publishing Interview starts at 8:19 and ends at 44:04 I’m convinced that if you want to retain your job in publishing moving forward, unless you’re demonstrably technology adept, you’re going to lose your job.

Author, entrepreneur, maker of ruckuses Interview starts at 4:33 and ends at 14:50. Paper books are going to gradually and painfully and very, very slowly disappear.

Principal at Clearwater High School in Clearwater, Florida Interview Starts at 24:02 I think eventually what you’ll see is the school will buy X number of devices for those that don’t have or can’t afford them, and then kids will be bringing their own devices, so it will be a blend.
