3 reasons why we takethe Web seriously forbook publishing
Pragmatists argument:Web is simply a superiorplatform for developinge-publications
Liberty argument:    Open, transparentstandards are increasingly   valuable in an age of  would-be monopolists.
Futurists argument:The web is THE publishingplatform of our time...
In 2050, the platform wellbe using wont be areplacement of the Web,but the evolution of it.
With that in mind,How to re-imaginebook publishing as ifthe web mattered?
