Will ___ replace ___?

December 12, 2013

UPS droneToday, I was struck by an article titled, Can Boundless finally end the paper textbook?. The words were meant to grab my attention, but they suggest a simplistic finish to a complex process. One product will not make schools instantly stop using paper textbooks. That kind of change doesn’t happen quickly; we will continue to move steadily toward delivering more content digitally. Neither will the change be all-or-nothing; we will be left with some paper textbooks.

Likewise, online learning will never completely replace brick-and-mortar schools and delivery trucks will not be replaced by fleets of drones.

Big changes are usually slow and incremental.
