The Final Sony Reader Revolution Video?

October 30, 2008

Day 28: Reader Revolution

Hey, where’s Day 29 and Day 30?!

At least now I know what the allusion to the “Chuck Norris signs” was about earlier today.

Blog Notes: It Was Cam Day

October 30, 2008

I spent most of the day watching Dave Farrow on the Sony Reader Revolution Cam.

Now I’ve been cropping 162 screensnaps to go through for a post tomorrow.

Blogging will resume as abnormally as usual tomorrow.

First, a video from Dave Farrow.

Dave Farrow Has Left The Window!

October 30, 2008


Dave Farrow — speed reader and memory expert — started a read-a-thon thirty days ago in the window of DataVision in New York City at the behest of Sony to promote the Sony Reader and to donate as many eBooks as possible to schools across the country.

Today, around 4:45PM EDST, that mission was accomplished.

Dave Farrow is gone. What remains is a commemorative sign in his former seat.

44,097 pages were turned.

Over 100 eBooks were read.

Sony will donate 4.4 million eBooks to schools.

I have a ginormous number of screensnaps for the final day to sort through to produce the final post for the Sony Reader Revolution cam posts here.
