MacNotables #1003: Tonya Engst on the State of Ebook Publishing and What It Needs to Evolve

Tonyaengst0307Tonya Engst of TidBITS and Take Control Books spends a lot of time in the world of ebooks, and has some fascinating insights on the most recent developments in the most rapidly-changing part of the publishing industry. Tonya covers the recent flood of ebook readers and the inelegant approach manufactures are taking, the blurring lines between web content, publications and ebooks, and what is needed to produce next-generation ebooks. She has some surprising thoughts on what is needed in ebook standards and why tomorrow’s ebook won’t look like today’s. Tonya also discuses the “silliness” of CES, and suggests an unusual possibility for Apple’s new device: cloth!
