E Ink's Russ Wilcox on e-paper, Amazon, and the future of publishing

February 27, 2009

An informative interview with the guys behind the e-ink technology used by pretty much everyone, including Amazon and Sony.

We went through the bubble bursting like everyone else. We had several different applications on the table. And we had to figure out how we were going to have a big impact on the world with a very small amount of cash. We came up with a grand vision of doing "radio paper" — a complete device and a service.

"Radio paper," ha! I wonder if they floated that idea by Sony (before Amazon), and if so, why Sony didn't run with it.
