Easy to see - the emotion evident on his face here.
To think that when he visited Carl in his office at Cornell as an applicant and Carl reached back, grabbed one of his books, signed it, and handed it to him - that one day, all too soon, Carl would be gone. And that Neil, would be called upon to host a Cosmos reboot.
Oh, the feels, the feels, the sciencey feels!
If I had a book signed by Carl Sagan, I’d probably get all teary about it too.

Well worth it. I'm glad that it's getting the hype and press, however. And FOX won't want to upset Seth Macfarlane (producer), aka FOX cash cow.
Your challenge is not really to be mobile, go digital or other such concepts. Those are easy. Your real challenge is that your future is a completely different market and a new generation. And the fundamental difference is that the next generation sees the internet as a companion, while the old sees it as a tool.
The idea is two-fold: First, each word is highlighted with a visual marker that fixates your eyes. Secondly, each word is arranged around this marker so that your eyes never have to move.
In theory, this allows you to read without spending any time moving between words, and the result is significantly faster reader.
In practice, though. I think we need to do some test, specially around comprehension, memory and understanding. Sure, you might be able to read the words that fast... but do you also understand what it is that you are reading? ...or is it all just stored in your brain's short-term memory?
In other words, is this just another example of quantity over quality? ... or is it really a way to make you more efficient?
So often we convince ourselves that change is only meaningful if there is some large, visible outcome associated with it. Meanwhile, improving by just 1 percent isn’t notable (and sometimes it isn’t evennoticeable). But it can be just as meaningful, especially in the long run.
