In case you didn't notice, the future started today.
Yes, that's an advertisement that ran in The Columbia Missourian for EmPRINT, which I previously discussed.
You are kidding right?
I guess I should fly to Columbia and then I can tell my grandkids, "I was there when the world changed"
Any small amount of respect EmPRINT had is now gone. This reminds of the CueCat or perhaps the Segway. Remember those other items that were going to change the world.
Hey, I scan locations mentioned in EmPrint with a modified CueCat that inputs the destination into my Segway's autopilot.
WWW in Urbana, Illinois ? Am I missing something ?
What happened to CERN, Europe ?
Sounds great, especially the part where I have to go through a registration process just to make it work. Why not make me download software too? May have to make up a user name for bugmenot.com
Does the future have an RSS feed? Oh, I forgot, RSS is part of the 'old', 'mainstream media', that EmPRINT will leave behind.
I guess I'll take my pile of user submitted content, searchability, interactive listings and databases out to the junk heap.
Adrian, when can I download a copy of HolOVATY.com?
But you can read EmPrint on a TabletPC while YOU'RE IN THE BATHROOM!! Don't you people understand?
