Mark Bertilis was nice enough to invite me to this week’s PubCall, a semi-regular publishing podcast.
I talked about the Open Publication Distribution System (OPDS), which I pronounce “op-dees” although probably “Open Pub” will win out.
OPDS is building some real momentum. Now is the time to get involved if you are interested in any of these parts of the digital publishing landscape:
- Reading systems
- Ebook distribution
- Annotations and shared bookmarks
- Metadata distribution
We’re especially looking for participation from content owners, including publishers and even individual authors.
For more information, join the Open Pub mailing list, which is quite active and just had its first stakeholders call.
Update: formal public release will be as part of this workshop event: Making Books Apparent.
