A presentation from BookNet Canada Technology Forum, Toronto, March 2009.
Michael Smith's presentation on EPUB ~ What a difference a year makes ~ Adoption of a Digital Standard
Mr. Smith needs a bit more practise doing presentations, but some interesting stats and graphics shown. I was almost expecting to see Calibre mentioned in one of his charts regarding conversion, but alas, no. (Mr Smith is executive director of the International Digital Publishing Forum - I'm not sure if he is connected to Hachette or not.)
18 minute video presentation
(*Note - this was posted as an afterthought in another article in the "News and Commentary" forum titled 6 Projects That Could Change Publishing For the Better
, but I thought it might get lost so I've reposted the link to the EPUB presentation again in this thread.)
