~Knowledge Device

July 22, 1998

Announcing the new Built-in Orderly Organized Knowledge device (BOOK).

The BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on. It’s so easy to use even a child can operate it. Just lift its cover!

Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere‑even sitting in an armchair by the fire‑yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD‑ROM disc.

Here’s how it works:

Each BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of paper (recyclable), each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. These pages are locked together with a custom-fit device called a binder, which keeps the sheets in their correct sequence.

Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to use both sides of the sheet, doubling the information density and cutting costs in half. Experts are divided on the prospects for further increases in information density; for now BOOKS with more information simply use     more pages. This makes them thicker and harder to carry, and has drawn some criticism from the mobile computing crowd.

Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly into your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet. The BOOK may be taken up at any time and used by merely opening it. The BOOK never crashes and never needs rebooting, though like other display devices, it can become unusable if dropped overboard.

The “browse” feature allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward or backward as you wish. Many come with an “index” feature, which pinpoints the exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval.

An optional “BOOKmark” accessory allows you to open the BOOK to the exact place you left it in a previous session–even if the BOOK has been closed. BOOKmarks fit universal design standards; thus, a single BOOKmark can be used in Books by various manufacturers.

Conversely, numerous bookmarkers can be used in a single BOOK if the user wants to store numerous views at once. Only the number of pages in the BOOK limits the number.

You can also make personal notes next to BOOK text     entries with an optional programming tool, the Portable Erasable Nib Cryptic Intercommunication Language Stylus (PENCILS).

Portable, durable, and affordable, the BOOK is being hailed as the entertainment wave of the future. The BOOK’s appeal seems so certain that thousands of content creators have committed to the platform.

Look for “The Night Search” by Kate Chamberlin and a flood of new titles and authors soon.

2019 Up-date: Joining “The Night Search” are “Charles and David”, “Green Trillium”, and “Behind Our Eyes: A Second Look”.

Class of ‘91

January 19, 1995 Wayne County STAR Newspaper     After high school graduation, classmates scatter to pursue many endeavors.  Sometimes the closest of ‘buds’ loose touch with each other as their lives diverge.

Many of the Wayne Central Class of ’91 are about to become the collegiate class of ’95.

I dialed the Mother’s Network”  to find out who is doing what:


Beth Bradley is a Senior at Nazareth College.  Her double major is English Literature and Philosophy.  She’d like to attend graduate school somewhere in New England.   One of her part-time jobs is working in Victoria’s Secret.  It sounds like she’s getting a well-rounded education!


Will Chamberlin is a Senior in the L. C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science at Syracuse University.  He is on the Dean’s List and will be graduated in May, 1995 with a B.S. in Computer Science with Co-Op work experience.  He has stayed active in Volley ball, basket ball and surfing cyberspace. He enjoys living off-campus with 7 housemates and a kitten.


Michelle Borkhuis has returned from attending the University of Wollongong, Australia through the University of Massachusetts.  She’ll be graduated in May with a B.S. in Exercise Science.   Michelle found that her experience and work outs with the 8-woman rowing team   at U. Mass. bode her well with all the back-packing, touring and canoeing she did in Australia.  She kept in contact with her parents via E-Mail AFTER returning successfully from her treks.


Stephanie Bradford  is doing field work during January for  Keuka College.  She will be graduated in May  with a degree in Hotel/Resort management.  Her  internship experiences have been located in N. Carolina, and portland, Oregon, as well as the Hyatt Downtown


Joe Dennie is a Senior at the University of Buffalo.  He’ll be graduated in May with a B.S. in Architecture.   This past summer he worked with his brother and a local contractor framing residential buildings.  Joe found out just how powerful a Power nail driver can be.                               Yes, powerful enough to send a nail through his foot!  He’s OK, but it’s a lesson that won’t have to be pounded into him again.


Ian Komorowski   is currently doing a Co-Op block through R.I.T. with the Monroe County Water Treatment Lab.  He lives in Brighten with two other fellows.  He is planning an extended back-packing trip in the spring to tour the U.S.A.  He’s kept in shape by spelunking (cave exploring) on the week-ends.


Noel Pollard was also a member of the Class of ’91.  His tragic death took him from us, but, he is not forgotten.


MaryKay VanVenschoten is currently working at Bill Grey’s.  She is enjoying being out on her own.  Her future plans might include joining her parents in North Carolina to help with their new restaurant, Speedies Pit Stop.


This is just a small sampling.   I’m sure there will be many “official” newspaper notices in the spring.

If you have a Wayne Central or Gananda graduate who you’d like to give a pat on the back, give me a call.  Let’s chat.
