Earlier this week, Amazon announced that they would begin renting out textbooks on Kindle devices. What’s cool is that two of the articles (on CNET and GeekWire) cite our research on e-reader use among university students. The CNET article in particular has some actual commentary on elements of our findings, particularly cognitive mapping; it’s nice to see at least one comment lauding the CNET article for bringing this up.
It’s particularly fun to see your academic research get referenced in a somewhat casual-yet-factual way. I can only hope The Colbert Report decides to do something similar with our work someday.
