LeVar Burton Talks Reading Rainbow (video)

LeVar Burton, actor, activist, and now founder of a tech startup, was on NBC's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon earlier this week to talk about his new app, the old Reading Rainbow show, and so on. It's a fun clip to watch. If you haven't seen any video or images of the new app (I hadn't) then you're in for a treat. The few screenshots posted in this clip remind me of the old Reading Rainbow show. I'm not saying they cloned it; it looks to me like the developers did a good job adapting the idea of the show into the form of an app.

You can find the app in iTunes.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

    This is wicked, that show was teh awesome, glad to know they really paid attention to how to keep the spirit of the original but take advantage of the new medium.
