The book has become the primary technology for information organization, communication, storage, and use. It is a mature technology, having evolved over hundreds (even thousands) of years to the current state that is relatively stable and unchanging. The book is the main technology used in education.

We give the Connexions Project at Rice University as an example of that new technology.
