The Book ~ A New Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge Device. THE BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology.
No wires. No electric circuits. No batteries. Nothing to be connected or switched on. So easy to use, even a child can operate it. THE BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of paper (recyclable), each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. The pages are locked together with a custom-fit device called a binder which keeps the sheets in their correct sequence.
THE BOOKs with more information simply use more pages. THE BOOK may be taken up at any time and used merely by opening it. THE BOOK never crashes or requires rebooting, though like other display devices it can become unusable if dropped overboard. An optional Bookmark accessory allows you to open THE BOOK to the exact place you left it in a previous session -- even if THE BOOK has been closed.
Bookmarks fit universal design standards; thus, a single Bookmark can be used in THE BOOK by various manufacturers. . * * * The Book ! Thanks to .. O'Reilly Open Books Project. O'Reilly has published a number of Open Books--books with various forms of "open" copyright--over the years.
The reasons for "opening" copyright, as well as the specific license agreements under which they are opened, are as varied as our authors. Perhaps a book was outdated enough to be put out of print, yet some people still needed the information it covered. Or the author or subject of a book felt strongly that it should be published under a particular open copyright. Maybe the book was written collectively by a particular community, as in the case of our Community Press books. But there's more to making Open Books available online than simply adopting an open license or giving up rights granted under copyright law. We're happy to have partnered with two innovative nonprofits, Creative Commons and the Internet Archive, to solve the licensing and digitizing challenges involved in bringing Open Books to readers.
