This is a dream in making…… but there is the fear of losing the information at the long run from now.. but what an interesting talk. I was trying to provide a video of the talk, but somehow the code that the video is on, does not appear as an embedded video.. so I am going to provide a link here.

Professor Barniuk speaks about his vision for an electronic open-source system that lets teachers share digital texts and course materials, modify them and give them to their students — all free.  Instead of having to pay the publishers for revised editions and slowness in updated material being made avaliable.
