Note: I have had several people ask about the Open Source Writing book, so I thought I would provide an update. I am still working hard and fast and hope to finish very soon. There are several chapters that still need technical review and two chapters that need to be updated for new software. The goal, though, is to have it ready by the end of the year. I’ll provide more updates as I have them.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on the e-Book version of Open Source Writing. While most of the work has related to getting the text cleaned up and making sure that the images are formatted properly for e-readers, this isn’t all. I’ve also been experimenting with the inclusion of video and interactive elements. (It turns out that most of the upcoming eReader platforms do a reasonable job of supporting HTML 5. The Barnes and Noble Nook already allows for the inclusion of video content and they’ve stated that supporting canvas is high on their task list.)
