10 Jahre eBooks!

Diesen Monat feiere ich ein hübsches Jubiläum - zehn Jahre beschäftige ich mich nun schon mit eBooks.

Im Januar 2001 hatte ich das Layout für eine geplante SF-Serie als eBooks entworfen, "John Storm".
Die Serie sollte noch als HTML-Dateien auf 3,5"-Disketten erscheinen und per Post verschickt werden. Alle Folgen online für Downloads anzubieten war damals noch finanziell riskant, weil das Datentransfervolumen so gering war, dass man mit mehreren Folgen online schnell jeden Monat extra zur Kasse gebeten werden konnte ...

An Online-Shops für Autoren, die ihre eBooks anbieten wollen, war damals noch nicht zu denken. Selbst beam gab es damals noch nicht. Und 2002 war es ein PDA-Magazin und noch lange kein Shop ...

Anfang 2002 hatte ich dann mit dem Rocket eBook mein erstes dediziertes Lesegerät, Ende 2002 startete dann mit "Talon" meine erste kostenlose Serie, und ab Anfang 2003 war ich dann mit dem Aufbau von "vph eBooks" beschäftigt, das bis heute unter "story2go" noch immer existiert (wenn auch inzwischen deutlich kleiner).

Hat sich viel getan in der Zeit. Auf die nächsten zehn!

Danke euch.

Als echten Pionier sehe ich mich aber wirklich nicht. Es gab damals schon die erste Projekte:

"Clou Gallagher", Die Weltensegler" und "Dorgon"; allen voran dann Wilfried A. Hary, der bereits 1986(!) die bereits geschriebenen, aber nicht mehr veröffentlichten Bände der Romanheftserie "Star Gate" auf Disketten verkaufte.
DOS-Oberfläche, bunte Schrift auf schwarzem Hintergrund, absolut scheußlich! Aber immerhin ...

Er bezeichnet sich zwar gerne vollmundig als "Erfinder des eBooks" (weia, seufz), aber er dürfte tatsächlich einer der ersten sein, die Ende der 80er eBooks kommerziell vermarktet haben.

Was soll man nun eigentlich sagen, Glückwunsch, Beileid?
Auf jeden Fall eine interessante Zeitspanne, die ich mit Newton und unzähligen Palms verbracht habe.
Mal sehen was die nächsten zehn Jahre bringen, es bleibt spannend.

Ich habe mich nun entschieden, Glückwunsch.
