If the age-old proverb about not judging a book by its cover is true, should you also not judge an e-book by its e-reader, whether it's a Kindle, Nook, iDevice, or something else? If Texas-based BookShout has anything to say about it, you'll one day be able to use their platform to read any e-book content on any device, regardless of where you bought it. But the technology is still immature, and Amazon and other e-book retailers may continue to make things difficult for such content aggregators.
Although mashups started out in the consumer space, their success makes a migration into corporate IT environments inevitable. Firms exploring this new software development model may struggle at first to understand the importance of mashups from a corporate perspective. In the upcoming book, Mashup Patterns, author Michael Ogrinz provides a collection of use-case driven patterns intended to explain the value of enterprise mashups to both technical and non-technical readers. We recently interviewed Michael about the patterns and what he hoped to achieve with his book.
The new Leanpub API helps authors publish their own work in ebook format and provides instant access to sales data. Leanpub is an online marketplace that enables writer’s to sell their ebooks in a variety of formats. Writers receive a 90% royalty (minus 50 cents) off each sale and are not prohibited from simulataneously selling their book on other marketplaces like Amazon. Unique to LeanPub, writers – particularly for computer programming books – are encouraged to publish works-in-progress and pivot their text based on reader feedback until they create a viable book product. To do this, Leanpub provides an editing language and self-publishing workflow that allows writers to submit their work and convert the material into several formats including PDF, EPUB and Kindle. The Leanpub API allows authors to manage their workflow direct from their preferred editor.
