Think about a future where the Discovery Channel is creating electronic "text books" for tablets. Let the big publishers try to stop that!

TV is going to the internet, newspapers are dying, kindle, nook, e-book, itunes: all thanks to the internet. Schools will be able to "subscribe" their students to content at a much cheaper rate. A one year subscription, you pick what ever "book" you want for your curriculum If an error is discovered, it can be fixed before the kids even get to that chapter.

You know it's coming, get ready, embrace it. Heck, you might even get rich off of it ;-)
