*This (Printed Book) ecology meant that:

  • publishers can get into business easily
  • booksellers appeared on many street corners
  • libraries bought and then lent books to patrons
  • authors, sometimes, got more than beer money
  • readers can enjoy the great works of humankind*

(Then he notes that Books In Browsers gets much closer to this than Books-in-Devices and Books-in-Apps. This kinda an OpenWeb story.)

Google’s promised Google Editions are going to be available in browsers. Amazon is putting its toe in the books-in-browser world with its recent beta. StarBucks and LibreDigital’s recent announcement of best sellers readable in browsers when at a Starbucks. Ibis Reader, Book Glutton, Re Publish, S Book, and the Internet Archive are other emerging technologies for reading in browsers.
