Reader friendly: Howard Clark and his e-book
...
But if Howard Clark is holding the future in his hands-and he may very well be-will the "graces of life" be reduced to electrons?Clark, a professor emeritus in Duke's biomedical engineering department, is an early convert to the electronic book."I'm the least computer-smart fellow in my department, and I took satisfaction in being the first to have an e-book," he says."My colleagues were astounded."
A year ago, Clark was a new-product tester for NuvoMedia's Rocket eBook.He tried it for a month, liked the experience, and made a purchase-at that time, for about $500-as soon as the technology became commercially available.Because of cataracts, he found reading printed books a strain.He was also confronting a space crisis: An avid reader, particularly of mystery stories, he was running out of shelf space at home; at the insistence of his wife, he got rid of a couple of hundred books last spring.
In his office at the Pratt School of Engineering, Clark produces his e-book and brings to the screen Joseph Ellis' American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson.
...
For his part, Clark observes that the Rocket eBook was released into an unsettled environment; the major competitor, SoftBook, has a different mechanism for transmitting the book to the reading device.So the e-book revolution may produce a variation on the unhappy battle of videocassette recorders waged by VHS and Betamax formats.He also wonders about pressure-which he hopes the manufacturers will resist-to add to the e-book such non-bookish features as cell phones and personal organizers.

The Barnes & Noble site is limited to about 2,000 selections, many of them self-help books and titles, like Dracula, on which the copyright has expired. (Still, for Frank McCourt's Tis, 'tisn't true that a critical flop is a technological flop, and the book made its way speedily as an e-book offering.) Clark says it's likely that booksellers underestimated the complexity of formatting e-book-friendly text.

Limitations aside, Clark is a fan of his Rocket eBook."I'm disappointed in the content, but that's irrelevant to the concept," he says.
...
Clark can imagine the hand-held device accommodating the full set of textbooks that engineering undergraduates use over their four years-bulky books like the Elements of Materials Science and Engineering that he has on his office shelf.It's already accompanied him on a European trip."The future is here," he says.
