Time Warner to Launch iPublish
from the more-ebooks dept
Time Warner seems to be moving in a big way towards eBooks. I do think this is a good thing, but it will be very interesting to see how it all works out. I’m still not convinced that eBooks are the way to go. My guess is there will be a small community who are very into it, and maybe one or two authors will become popular – at which point they’ll be published as print authors. Then there will be all sorts of articles about those lucky authors. To some extent, eBooks may act as a “minor league” of authors. The good thing, though is that such a major player has decided to really get involved. I wonder how much AOL had to do with this decision… Update: Here’s another story about how Microsoft is moving forward in this arena as well with deals with Simon & Schuster and Barnes & Noble.
