AOL Bill Manager launched today, powered by Manilla. This is the first time that Manilla has done a deep integration to allow consumers to interact with its services at a site other than Manilla.com. It is an important milestone for Manilla–and the broader digital mailbox services category–because it reinforces the opportunity to reach large concentrations of potential users via integrations with existing consumer destinations. AOL Bill Manager has a prominent position on the Finance page and Manilla’s branding remains strong, as shown below.

Via the press release, Manilla CEO Jim Schinella had this to say:

“…[O]ur partnership with AOL represents the next step in our continued commitment to reducing paper mail and creating the best solution for our users. AOL Bill Manager is the result of Read more »

Frankly Speaking: Paper Will be the New Gold

As paper volumes drop because of electronic substitution, and paper mills cut capacity to sync with demand, paper will become a rare commodity. And rare commodities are worth a lot of money.

I would start hoarding paper now instead of gold and silver. Some day, we will have new denominations based on sheets, reams, cases, and of course, rolls of paper. It may not be uncommon to hear “Can I Read more »

Students in South Korea will have a much lighter backpack in the next four years. According to a South Korean online news site, all of South Korea’s educational materials will be delivered via electronic devices by 2015. The South Korean government aims to convert all paper textbooks into digital versions, and increase online classes so students can continue their studies outside of school. South Korea’s Education Ministry plans to use smart phones, tablet PCs, and smart televisions to deliver the entire school curriculum though a cloud-based system, which will allow students to download textbooks on their tablets.

Years ago, I recall a rather forward-thinking teacher telling my sixth grade class that people would someday do all of their reading on computers.

“I don’t like that idea,” my friend instantly objected. “You can’t curl up with a computer!” Of course, my classmate was quite right at the time–the computers of yesteryear were big, noisy, and barely transportable.
