Talk Title: Pioneers wanted: help us make textbooks free to the world.

We have built a platform that will do for textbooks what Wikipedia did for the encyclopedia- but we are going far beyond that with features that will improve education, reduce teacher workloads and improve metrics – and it will be free for teachers and students to use. This is not a commercial product, there is no advertising or tracking and everyone’s privacy is respected. Sound interesting? Join me at my talk, I’ll tell you how we are going to do this and how you can help us change the world for the better.
