How about a “YouTube” for printed documents?

YouTube has undoubtedly been a success. So too has iTunes. But they both only deal with video and audio. Human beings, however, use printed materials in vast amounts – perhaps more than video and audio. So wouldn’t it be fantastic if there were an equivalent of YouTube but for printed documents?

Well guess what – there is! It is called “Issuu” and as you can see from the picture below I’ve started to use it to upload my documents.

You’ll see that you can flip over the pages to read them online, with a handy magnifier. Or you can press the print button to have a paper copy. And, if you like, you can email yourself or a friend a copy.

Even better, Issuu has social networking capabilities so you can notify your friends and contacts about your latest publications. People can even subscribe to an RSS feed of your publications – ideal for newsletters and other regular publications.
