  • 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?
  • 1. Ickmull:Printing the Web inInDesignHTML to IDML via XSLThttp://code.google.com/p/ickmull
  • 2. The Book of MPub (2010)An end-to-end book developmentproject, entirely in WordPress, openpeer reviewed, with simultaneousprint, epub, web incarnations.http://tkbr.ccsp.sfu.ca/bookofmpub
  • 3. Editorial workflowsupport in WordPressOngoing graduate studentR&D, going for low-hangingfruit
  • PressBooks:An open source,webby,book publishing toolbuilt on WordPress.
  • * Adapts WordPress admin forbook production workflows
  • * Generates clean, well-formatted books in multipleoutputs* Makes it easy for an editorialteam to work together (I think)
  • Export formats:* Web (HTML)* ePub* Print-on-Demand ready PDF(note: this was done Sunday afternoon)* InDesign ready XML
  • And now ...
