I was lead to this video & blog by the continuing debate I mentioned previously and which Mark Thwaite of the Book Depository (I love shopping there and intend to shop there more) continues on The Booksellers new blog section.
Now the system strikes me as like xFruits, a similar service that has launched to weak enough take off (perhaps it was a little ahead of its time/has a difficult time getting readership and thus publishers/has no revenue model attached). The site lists only 13620 xfruiters!
It may be an old idea executed well but it is very cool even so!
Which reminds me. You can find my own blog in a nice little PDF here.
Remembering the coolness of reading one’s own words on a nicely formatted pdf!
