eBook Educators Group

where educators come to learn from one another

I mentioned Paperight when I wrote about ideas for ereader/tablet grants. This initiative is interesting in that it doesn't specifically involve the selling and reading of ebooks, but rather, using electronic distribution to empower local print shops (and whoever else wants to) to LEGALLY print & bind books (the source files of which are distributed electronically). 

Paperight is less about POD/ebook stores/AmazonAppleKoboBlah and more about licensing. A customer enters your shop, pays you to print & bind the book, and a portion of that goes to the publisher. I believe it applies to this group since it is yet another way to get knowledge into the community.
