Push-button printing ?

Blogging is often called push-button publishing, it looks like within next few short years, we could see 'Push-button printing' become a hot trend. In a recent announcement that the print-on-demand Espresso machine is now being tested at the World Bank, which can print black-and-white text for a 300-page paperback with a four-color cover, and bind it together in 3 minutes.
If the test run goes well, as early as next year people would be able to order books (or blogs) online in just about any language. After pressing few buttons, faster than they can say "Grande Caramel Macchiato," peoplee will be able to be pick up the finished book/blook at a nearby bookstore, coffee shop, Kinko’s or Wal-Mart.
