Threepress world tour ‘09-10
by Liza Daly
Here’s a roundup of upcoming talks at various publishing conferences:
January 27, 2010
When digital books account for 10% or more of revenue, indifferent third-party conversions aren’t enough. I’ll be presenting a plenary session on taking ebook quality control to the next level.
February 22-24, 2010
Networked, Mobile & Landlocked: Current Ereaders
Keith Fahlgren and I will reprise our session from last year showcasing various ereading devices. We’ll focus on new devices released this year, including the Kindle DX, Nook and 3G Sony Reader, and describe the current and future impact of Android on mobile reading.
Hadrien Gardeur (Feedbooks), Keith Fahlgren (O’Reilly Media, Inc. ), Liza Daly (Threepress Consulting Inc.)
You may have heard about OPDS and BookServer. This technical workshop will describe the OPDS format, its role in the larger BookServer architecture, and how to create and distribute OPDS book catalogs.
This will be a pecha kucha/O’Reilly Ignite. I’ve never presented one before, so that should be, uh, fun?
March 25, 2010
This presentation will focus on the formatting options available in ePub, how open standards like CSS are implemented in the real world, and identify those features of ebooks which can be controlled — and those that are just part of the new publishing reality.
