Google Books: Just-in-time book publishing

If this technology takes off, it could mean smaller book stores.  Barnes & Noble or Borders as we know them, may end up looking more like coffee shops than a book store.

You may also see small “mom & pop” book shops sprout out with a drive through for book pick ups, considering the space requirement will be significantly smaller and provided that the machine is relatively affordable for businesses.

Imagine also if libraries get some funding from the government to provide this service. They can get any books available online provided paper supplies are available!

This is also excellent for people who wants to self-publish. See the video below. You don’t have to have a publisher publish your book; you can do it yourself.

It would be interesting how this evolves or develops in the next two to three years.
