BRIEF: Paperless textbooks: Firm taking class content into the clouds [Foster's Daily Democrat, Dover, N.H.]
(Foster's Daily Democrat (Dover, NH) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Sept. 08--PORTSMOUTH -- A company that expects to become a leader in electronic textbooks and virtual classrooms has moved back to Portsmouth at offices on Commerce Way.
For Trunity CEO Terry Anderton the third-floor offices have a homey feel, since he designed the interior and operated another high-tech firm there, NitroSecurity, until selling the computer security company to McAfee in 2011.
Begun by him in 2009, Trunity was located at Harbor Place in Portsmouth until a move to Newburyport, Mass. The return to New Hampshire was precipitated by the need for more space and a looming Massachusetts tax on software services.
Now that it's back in the city where it all began, Anderton and a team of specialists he's assembled hope to take textbooks and education into the future.
Trunity first set out to make quality educational information available to everyone. Its name is derived from a combination of "truth" and "community." Its initial success was the Encyclopedia of the Earth (Eoearth.org), which became one of the leading Earth sciences websites in the world.
