Electronic Paper Turns the Page.
Mann, Charles C.
Technology Review, v104 n1 p42-46,48 Mar 2001
Suggests that, rather than the electronic book, the technology that is most likely to transform reading and writing will be electronic paper (e-paper). Traces the evolution of e-paper from its prototype created by Xerox PARC's Nick Sheridon in 1975 to the E Ink/Lucent e-paper made from e-ink and plastic transistors. Highlights future possibilities.
