1. Bytes Document Solutions has feet on the ground in 24 African countries with great MFP's. (thanks, again engineers)
2. Everyone in Africa is going to need textbook type things because education is so top of the agenda
3. Whatever government money or foreign aid is going to be spent on health and eduction.
4. Doing eduction is being on the side of the angels.
5. MFP's can link Print to the Cloud.
6. Printing content from the Cloud is our sweet spot.
6. More textbook like product means more clicks.
Q: Why don't we catalyze the textbook like business over there and not even have to get into a fight with the American oligopoly, here? . . . until we get it just right over there.
