John Markoff e-signs his book, "Machines of Loving Grace," on an iPad Pro

John Markoff e-signs his book, "Machines of Loving Grace"

I caught up with author and New York Times science writer John Markoff today over lunch, and asked him to electronically sign his book, Machines of Loving Grace: The Quest for Common Ground. Neither of us really knows what that means, so we used Skitch, and iPad Pro, and a screenshot of my purchased Kindle-version book cover.

To make it real, I captured the signing session in 360 video. 360 video doesn't quite work yet on all platforms, but you can generally click/drag the point of view around, and if you view the video in the YouTube app on an Android device, it works with Google Cardboard.
