The Portable Association Bookstore
Well, now this is a gem of an idea that I just ran across. What do you get when you cross mobile phones, sustainability concerns and publishing? You get things like this new digital wallpaper....
Better yet, all of the associations out there struggling with the time, talent and treasure spent on setting up bookstores at your conferences, may have a new option on the way. Instead of putting up a bookstore, put up some wallpaper instead. Members can browse, purchase and download straight onto their mobile devices.
Although the video talks about only free books to start with, it's only a matter of time before people figure out how to monetize this. And with fresh innovations like this, you could set up a bookstore in every hallway, meeting room or common area.
Keep an eye out for digital wallpaper, coming soon to a wall near you!
