Book: A Futurist’s Manifesto : Part 2!

We are very happy to announce the second installment of “Book: A Futurist’s Manifesto,” (published by O’Reilly and edited by Hugh McGuire of PressBooks and Brian O’Leary), with new essays from Eli James, Erin McKean, Terry Jones, Aaron Miller and Travis Alber, Brett Sandursky, Ron Martinez, Peter Brantley, Kassia Krozser and Hugh McGuire.

While Part One defined the current state of publishing as it moves to digital, Part Two opens up new ground about what we can now do with books — if we choose to be bold. We explore web literature, books as data sets, social reading, obscurity, and the reader’s role in the new digital world.

You can buy the book here, or read it online for free:
