The S-Book is a joint project between Bell Labs, Cambridge University Press and Abilene Christian University in Texas.
The idea is to combine social networking with e-books. As shown in this shot of an S-Book on an iPad, students would be able to see who of their classmates is reading the same page and who has annotated certain paragraphs. They could then join in a virtual discussion about the meaning of certain extracts.
