Slides on Slideshare! #SSP2012• #NISO = 1/3 Publishers, 1/3 Libraries, 1/3 automation vendors - where communities converge to develop standards #SSP2012• There are lots of ways that standards apply to content distribution, many you don’t think of. #ssp2012• No, I’m not going to talk about social media apps. Sorry! #ssp2012• Clive Thompson on the Future of Reading in a Digital World http://bit.ly/L7tK4Y #ssp2012• Liza Daly @liza The iPad in the Eyes of the Digerati (2010) http://nyti.ms/L7tYJk #ssp2012• Page “147” is meaningless in a world of reflowable text? #ssp2012• Some (imperfect) location methods of text location: Chapter/verse, char count, X-Path, pre-post text hash #ssp2012• If finding text marker is same edition is hard, try different editions, different versions of a text #ssp2012• Sharing between walled gardens is also an incredible problem #ssp2012• There is more to annotate than simply text. There are also photos, audio, videos more... #ssp2012• Information about two Mellon Foundation funded meetings on Social Reading: http://bit.ly/oKoeIB #ssp2012• Work underway at #NISO to develop an open and extensible standard for location and sharing of annotations #ssp2012
