This is perhaps not really open thread material, but this Forbes article about the Harvard bookstore and how they are fighting Amazon was interesting and perhaps related to Dr. Science's recent posts on the publishing industry.
The centerpiece of the efforts is the espresso book making machine, which I have put a youtube video below the fold.
I remember seeing one of these machines in a Japanese book store in Jimbocho, Tokyo, which is the bookstore quarter of the city, but I didn't realize what it was until I read about it.
Anyway, enjoy the video and write about what you want in the comments.
