Anything But Boring
The new age reading technologies created by Gold's group began a U.S. tour at the San Jose Tech Museum in the spring. The tour will allows Xerox PARC to study how children and adults react and respond to these emerging technologies. "When we told the museum that we were bringing in an exhibit about reading, they too said, 'Could you pick a more boring topic?' In fact, what we found was just the opposite. They couldn't get people to move through the exhibit fast enough!"
