Shameless Self Promotion here:
You can subscribe to Hinduism Today Digital Magazine for free. The
concept was seeded by Dan's Smart Books, with added features built
into a prototype by our team here and the "heavy lifting" coding was
done by Andre.
But I think the concept of a Revolution front end to PDF resources
that live on a web server and are downloaded and stored as a library
on the local hard drive is a very solid concept for the edu world.
of course Dan's book is also there as a teaching tool.
