  31. 3 reasons why we take the Web seriously for book publishing
  32. Pragmatist's argument: Web is simply a superior platform for developing e-publications
  33. Liberty argument: Open, transparent standards are increasingly valuable in an age of would-be monopolists.
  34. Futurist's argument: The web is THE publishing platform of our time...
  35. In 2050, the platform we'll be using won't be a replacement of the Web, but the evolution of it.
  36. With that in mind, How to re-imagine book publishing as if the web mattered?
  37. 1. Ickmull: Printing the Web in InDesign HTML to IDML via XSLT http://code.google.com/p/ickmull
  38. 2. The Book of MPub (2010) An end-to-end book development project, entirely in WordPress, open peer reviewed, with simultaneous print, epub, web incarnations. http://tkbr.ccsp.sfu.ca/bookofmpub
  39. 3. Editorial workflow support in WordPress Ongoing graduate student R&D, going for low-hanging fruit
  40. PressBooks: An open source, webby, book publishing tool built on WordPress.
  41. * Adapts WordPress admin for book production workflows
  42. * Generates clean, well- formatted books in multiple outputs * Makes it easy for an editorial team to work together (I think)
  43. Export formats: * Web (HTML) * ePub * Print-on-Demand ready PDF (note: this was done Sunday afternoon) * InDesign ready XML
  44. And now ...
  45. ... for the foolhardy ...
  46. ...a live demo!
  47. (What could possibly go wrong?)
  48. backup screenshots
  49. pressbooks.com ... still in private alpha (but open special for today only!)
