The book we are working on to print for the 9th annual Future of Text Symposium will be in both digital and printed form. The digital form will include being on this blog and being released as an eBook/ePub.
The book itself should really be an experiment in what a printed book can be. Should we put the index up front, to highlight how an index was in a way a pre-digital hyperlink? Should we come up with a novel and useful way to link digital and printed? How should we handle a glossary etc.? These are questions we’ll be asking as we prepare for the production.
The book will contain single page (roughly) contributions from FoT panelists and experts in a wide range of fields. We hope it will provide useful nuggets to spark further thought, dialog and innovation.
