I write the E-Book Report blog for Publishers Weekly and am editor-publisher of TeleRead.org. I’m also author of The Silicon Jungle (Ballantine), The Complete Laptop Computer Guide (St. Martin’s), and four other books.
Among my interests are e-libraries, e-book devices and related hardware such as OLPC’s sharp-screened XO-1, copyright, business models for E, digital divide issues, the DRM debate, and format standards. I consider both traditional DRM and the Tower of eBabel, as I’ve dubbed it, to be lit- and sales-toxins in most cases. One possible DRM-related compromise might be social DRM.
I’ve been writing about e-books since the early 1990s and am the author of the TeleRead chapter of Scholarly Publishing: The Electronic Frontier (MIT/ASIS), where I call for a well-stocked national digital library system carefully integrated with schools and libraries—-and the popularization of book-friendly hardware. TeleRead-related articles have also appeared in the Washington Post and U.S. News & World Report , among other places.
