Research and Education

  • David Avrin


In our lifetime, education and research have been synonymous with books and print publications. Five centuries have passed since Gutenberg invented the printing press, but not even a decade since publication on the World Wide Web and widespread publication of educational material on CD-ROM. I recently received my subscription copy of Windows magazine, which contained a mailer for new subscriptions, but also an apparently hastily written note from the publisher in the contents section to the effect that this was the last print copy I would receive, that all future effort will be devoted to the Web version of their publication, and that I would be compensated in some way. Now, that is the sign of a revolution.
