Where eBooks are going

The first truly interactive book

Al Gore's new book Our Choice demonstrates astounding new technology.

For a stunning glimpse into the future of eBooks, go to:

First, click to play the trailer.  The popup menu gives you the opportunity to view it fullscreen, which I recommend.

Then, while you are still gobsmacked, go further down the page and click the video to see how to "read" the book, and find out how truly interactive it is.

Is this the future of magazines such as National Geographic?  Inevitably, I imagine -- which is going to make passing time in dentists' waiting rooms a lot, lot more interesting.
