Reasons to love blog stats: Hol Art Books

Eoin Purcell

Looking over my logs (as I assure you I rarely do)
I came across a link from this blog:

Now under development, Hol Art Books is a startup publisher dedicated to enjoyable, engaging and enlightening writing on visual art. In a wholly unique approach to publishing, we are creating
a user-driven bibliography of art literature and building the tools for readers, booksellers, authors and other publishers to add, categorize, share and even publish new work within that resource.

This website is both a presentation of our emerging company and a prototype for its future. But it’s just the first step. If you would be interested in joining Hol as a partner, investor, advisor, or project participant, please contact me. Your participation is encouraged.

Thank you,

The site is pretty simple but also nicely packed with info and detail. Well worth checking out.

Exciting like kindle isn’t,

When will it stop?
The Kindle comment. What surprises me is the mixed tenor. Some people love it (Guy Kawasaki) others hate it (Jeff Jarvis)

“You’ll find it’s as easy as reading your favourite book!”

I’m quoting the promo video there. Talk about making the case for the printed word. Why would I spend $400 to simulate something that is easy?

I’m pretty sure I hate it but I AM intrigued by this:

Welcome to Digital Text Platform
Digital Text Platform is a fast and easy self-publishing tool that lets you upload and format your books for sale in the Kindle Store.

And if you are interested in a non-biased by emotion review (and who would be) try 37Signals who are planning to review Kindle based on having a real one to hand. Novel.

Still underwhelmed but worried because this might actually be an important step if you believe Michael Hyatt,
