  • digital <> physical reference Ebook Sanity - We argue that ebooks are digital, and thus shouldn’t be bound by the rules of the physical (one purchase = one copy to circ, etc). At the same time, we want First Sale rights on our electronic collections, a right that is intrinsically tied to the physical object. We can’t have it both ways. \n
  • the only rights we have are the ones we agree to in the license we sign\n

  • cost to manufacture\n
  • 6.5% of the cost over 20 years. And Moore’s law tells us that cost doesn’t equal reduced capability...indeed, it means an increase in capabilities over the cost of the reduction in price. There is no other good that I can think of that gets cheaper AND better at the same time. \n

  • In October 2009 John Walkenbach noticed that the price of the Kindle was falling at a consistent rate, lowering almost on a schedule. By June 2010, the rate was so unwavering that he could easily forecast the date at which the Kindle would be free: November 2011.\nSince then I've mentioned this forecast to all kinds of folks. In August, 2010 I had the chance to point it out to Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon. He merely smiled and said, "Oh, you noticed that!" And then smiled again.\nWhen I brought it to the attention of publishing veterans they would often laugh nervously. How outrageous! they would say. It must cost something to make? The trick was figuring out how Amazon could bundle the free Kindle and still make money. My thought was the cell phone model: a free Kindle if you buy X number of e-books.\n\n\n

  • in the first generation of print, we got...well, we got a lot, but it took almost 50 years (gutenberg in 1440 to la morte d’artur in 1485) or 170 years before we got a novel after the invention of the printing press (Gutenberg around 1440, and Don Quixote in 1605. We’re in the 4th decade of ebooks, but we’re still just scratching the surface. It wasn’t until 1998 that the first dedicated ebook reader was produced. \n
