Because, frankly, the ebook formats are still too limited. We can now embed the digital media within ebooks. Why ebooks, not on the web? However, we can’t quite do what I want with ebooks. The ebook standards don’t yet support it, though they could. I think it’s primarily about the ergonomics.

The Environment and eBook Readers
Stephen Downes: Half an Hour
JUNE 6, 2010
Of more concern are the materials used to create ebooks, and in particular, the minerals and the energy. And while some of these materials are "exotic metals from oppressed and war-torn countries" the problem here is not the ebook readers themselves but rather the conditions under which we extract the materials. Good luck.

Steven Berlin Johnson
APRIL 20, 2009
The folks at the Wall Street Journal very nicely asked me to write a cover story for their Journal Report on technology, which is on the stands today. The piece is here online, but if you get a chance, check in out in print (ironic, I know.) They dedicated the whole front page of the section to the story, which is really cool to see.

Apple blocking books that link to Amazon
FEBRUARY 29, 2012
Apple, apparently, won’t carry an ebook that contains a link to buy a hardcover book from Amazon. Second, the vertical integration of this market — the dominate sellers of ebook hardware are also the dominant sellers of ebooks — imposes a similar cultural obligation.

"Ebooks: The sceptics" (Guardian UK) What a load of crap!
JULY 28, 2008
So I guess the Guardian (UK) went out and asked some authors how they felt about eBooks. Finally, one is actually " horrified by the idea of ebooks" and that she loves the "feel and production of books, and I covet them as possessions.". One author laments not being able to spy out what people are reading on the train. I get that.

NOVEMBER 13, 2011
In his 2010 ebook The Great Stagnation Cowen argued that it’s not. In our 2011 ebook Race Against the Machine we argue that it is — that technological innovation is going great guns at present — and that our labor force woes are due primarily to tech progress, not stagnation.
Has HarperCollins lost its mind or its soul?
FEBRUARY 26, 2011
I understand publishers’ desire to limit ebook access so that selling one copy doesn’t serve the needs of the entire world. HarperCollins has changed its agreement with the main distributor of e-books to libraries: e-books will now become inaccessible after 26 checkouts. It’s beyond ironic.
