KatMeyer: Joe Wikert - DRM has to go away, but his focus is on developing content beyond print so reader can then choose experience #TOC

robotech_master: @megfischer Yes, I read books on my iPhone all the time. Before that, I read them on color and monochrome PalmOS PDAs. #toc

ami_with_an_i: Q. Are publishers ready for eBooks? A. Not if they don't keep an eye on new technology. #toc

jtallent: the iPhone is not an eBook reader! I get why people like it, but how can you read on such a small screen? #toc

sarahw: #toc wikert: must be actively involved with tools and technology. Many in room have iphones

kirkbiglione: Hamilton notes that many data apps are actually books, they just don't look like books (restaurant guides, etc.) #toc

totai: E-books aren't a simple digital equivalent of a print book. #toc

pablod: Show of hands: who has an iPhone/iTouch? An asston of people. Who's got a Kindle: not as many people. #toc

jtallent: @robotech_master cute #toc

julietrelstad: At rise of ebook panel: are future non-fiction books applications? #toc

pablod: Books apps v. Reader apps: depends on the application. Fair enough, but man, Book apps suck. #toc

RonHogan: #toc weRead also taking up the "case study" nomenclature, with specific campaign examples.

TAC_NISO: McCoy: DRM-keep your honest customers honest. Well, that isn't the problem. Gun laws don't prevent criminals from using guns in crime. #toc

robotech_master: @jtallent Hey, you asked. #toc

ValWorkman: Open authoring of ebooks is critical. The relationship between content and community is established. #toc

rambleginger: So far the only real bummer about the #toc conference is the distinct lack of power plugs for the amount of folks who have laptops.

chelseagreen: It seems I'm picking all the same presentations as @timoreilly. Odd. #toc

ami_with_an_i: eBooks as separate iPhone apps--good or bad idea? No one is committing one way or the other. Interesting. #toc

totai: I think people like to use the word ubiquitous, I have heard it at least a half dozen times this morning. #toc

toc: Can anyone answer? @jtallent: iPhone is not an eBook reader! I get why people like it, but how can you read on such a small screen? #toc

kirkbiglione: Wikert: no sign of cannibalization of print sales from iPhone app sales(re: iphone missing manual). #toc

pablod: Does the Kindle matter as much as we think it does? No. #toc

totai: How to read on an iPhone, turn it on, click on Stanze, choose your book, read. #toc.

kate_eltham: If publishers can licence digital content to 3rd parties, why can't authors? #TOC

RonHogan: #toc that said, if talk is abt power of social networks for self-pubbed, why use HC & S&S books as examples?

robotech_master: @jtalent @toc Seriously, you only read one word or sentence at a time. Unless you speed-read, it just means you turn page more often. #toc

tonyarucker: #TOC session on social media and publishing....more like a sales presentation. We are here to go to the next level on this topic.

angelinaward: #toc switched to ebook panel from all the post activity

pablod: Amazon is building a moat—consumers and corps should catch on to epub to fill in that moat #toc

cmaisannes: Question: Does the Kindle matter as much as we think it does? D. Rothman: No. It’s based on proprietary technology. Get with the epub. #TOC

joebachana: #toc Wiley -- love that they license their content to 3rd party businesses (ex Frommers to hotel chains)

RonHogan: #toc you need to create author profile, connect to fans, support book clubs, give stuff away, use targetted ads. Collect underwear?

eykd: Adobe: "It's important to us that our formats are supported across devices." Is Adobe the *only* company that thinks this way?#toc

robotech_master: @cmaisannes Yeah, you can always count on @rothman to beat the up-with-ePub, down-with-proprietary drum. It's kind of endearing. :) #toc

chelseagreen: @robotech_master @daviddurand @oreilly is the only one I know of. I'd bet only 2% of the pubs here could tell you how to create an epub #toc

JohnMontalbano: RT @upendal: The education market has excellent examples of digital content experiences that are way more that print txtbook by itself #toc

totai: Can anyone say iPhone-envy?! #toc

KatMeyer: Kindle as reader is okay - it's Amazon's closed proprietary system that is a bad idea. They need to learn a little bit from Apple (JW) #TOC

aaronhierholzer: @ami_with_an_i Agree with panelists that app clutter is a problem—and that it depends on content of book, ie, Zagat guide suited to app #toc

mikecane: Did Adobe SRSLY say ePub via FLASH? Are they insane?!!? #TOC

jtallent: Stanza would not exist without the Kindle #toc

pablod: @jtallent: "how can you read on such a small screen?" very well, thanks. #toc

TAC_NISO: @toc RT jtallent - 1) resize the text on screen. Bigger screens are better, but try putting a Kindle in your pocket. #toc
