The Chronicle of Higher Education’s Jennifer Howard, writes about Stephen Duncombe, an associate professor of media and culture at New York University, who has created a free, online version of Thomas More’s Utopia, called Open Utopia.  The idea is that anyone can “browse – and annotate the book,” an example of “social reading.” This is a move toward “what a book might look like in the future, when it’s not just something bound between two covers, and words on a page.”
