GO OCE! Next stop is versioned newspapers instead of textbooks in K -12 education.

From reading the press release (see snippet ) it sounds like all the pieces have been tested in the field.

All you have to do is to replace "consumer" with "teacher" and "micro-zoned" with "classroom."

If you can get a newspaper publisher to see the opportunity in editing to standards for learning, instead of editing for the news cycle, refreshable content is done. But, if you can't get their attention, we'll find some awesome freelance creatives to do the content and design of the paper part.

Then we'll get some hospitals and public health organizations to put in ads to pay for the whole thing and supply Free Versioned Newspapers instead of textbooks to every ed system in the States.

Then add CodeZ QR codes to get the data.
Since the only thing any manager wants is the data in the form of actionable intelligence my bet is that they will love if.
