Conclusions

by Joseph T. Sin­clair

Tac­til­i­ty, vis­i­bil­i­ty, facil­i­ty! One can only con­clude that elec­tron­ic books are the future, and it’s just a mat­ter of time before print­ed books dis­ap­pear, relics of a bygone mil­len­ni­um. Ebooks have already replaced print­ed books in How2 and many oth­er gen­res. Ama­zon has 41% of all book sales, and they sell more ebooks than print­ed books. Ebooks have made an amaz­ing pen­e­tra­tion of the book mar­ket in just a mere decade.

Con­se­quent­ly, this blog is devot­ed to elec­tron­ic books because they are the future of pub­lish­ing. But pub­lish­ing isn’t the same with dig­its as it is with print. There are many more pos­si­bil­i­ties due to the real­i­ty that elec­tron­ic books can accom­mo­date diverse media. Books will nev­er be the same, and twen­ty years hence we will have expe­ri­enced the ini­ti­a­tion of a rich media book pub­lish­ing indus­try. Yet today we are still at the begin­ning.

This blog intends to explore the pos­si­bil­i­ties, new tech­nolo­gies, new soft­ware, new hard­ware and new mar­ket­ing for elec­tron­ic books. Or to put it blunt­ly, I believe print­ed books are in their death throes, and are no longer worth pay­ing much atten­tion to even though book print­ing will remain a viable indus­try for a few more years.

With the above in mind, we can get start­ed with this blog.
