Google Editions to offer direct ePub upload

I came across this very interesting blogpost today at Munsey's Technosnarl:

Quote:
Anyway, they’re going to let publishers (me) provide their own epub source files, rather than have to deal with Google’s automated extraction from the .pdf source docs.

They will supposedly have direct uploads of .epubs in the future, for now, it’s one of those, I can upload it to my server, then they’ll get it, type things.
Appareantly, publishers will be able to upload both pdf and ePub versions of their ebooks. Google already offered ePub versions of many ebooks in their database, but those where created using OCR technology and contained many (formatting) errors.

It will be very interesting to see what will happen when Google opens their Editions ebookshop in 2010. I have been waiting for a cross-platform web-based ePub ebookshop, now Google seems to start offering it.

Also see my earlier post about the first official details of Google Editions.
