The future of the book, expanding

I've posted a couple excerpts from the book I am working on, about the future of books and reading. It's a different topic than Rational Rants' mandate, and with so much news and opinion every day to comment on, deserving of its own place and community.

I've posted a couple excerpts from the book I am working on, about the future of books and reading. It's a different topic than Rational Rants' mandate, and with so much news and opinion every day to comment on, deserving of its own place and community. So, without further adieu, I introduce you to BooksAhead.com, where today's comments include topics as diverse as Blackberry e-reader applications, color e-readers, Kindle DX and the meaning of spoken word rights when e-readers can read aloud.

Keeping up with news about the future of publishing is a full-time job. I'll also be reproducing e-book and publishing-related articles from Digital Media: A Seybold Report, which I edited way back when, when e-books were only eight years old (which is longer ago than you think).
