    • 31. 3 reasons why we takethe Web seriously forbook publishing
    • 32. Pragmatists argument:Web is simply a superiorplatform for developinge-publications
    • 33. Liberty argument: Open, transparentstandards are increasingly valuable in an age of would-be monopolists.

    • 35. In 2050, the platform wellbe using wont be areplacement of the Web,but the evolution of it.
    • 36. With that in mind,How to re-imaginebook publishing as ifthe web mattered?
