‘The once and future e-book’ by John Siracusa

The Once and Future E-book by John SiracusaWe loved John Siracusa’s ‘The once and future e-book’ on Ars Technica so much that we wanted to show it to everyone curious about ebooks. We could just point you to the page (here, go!), but it seemed nice to share this fabulous essay as an ebook. With permission from John and Ken Fisher of Ars Technica, we created an epub version of his piece.
