I was in San Francisco last week attending the Books in Browsers Conference, and there’s this one concept demo that I’ve been wanting to share with you ever since I saw it. Pablo Defendini of Open Road Media showed off a project he’d put together over the weekend. It uses CSS and HTML to generate…

Neelie Kroes, the European Commissioner for Digital Agenda, gave the opening address at last week’s Frankfurt Book Fair. I just came across a copy of the speech last night, and I’m surprised it didn’t get more attention. This the first time that I’ve heard a politician talk about digital content and not simply repeat the…

So I’m sitting on someone’s doorstep a few doors down from 508 W 37th ST.  I thought you might be interested in 2 photos of the good-sized tent that Amazon have sitting out front. This doesn’t look like a terribly large venue (it has the feel of a converted storefront), but then again I have…
