Crackin’ wise: eBooks..and…stuff

I strive for roundtables full of insight, entertainment, pearls of wisdom and discovery.

This ain’t one of those.

There are some pearls cast by this panel of educated swine, but mostly it was an excuse to hang out with J. Daniel Sawyer, Starla Huchton and Brand Gamblin for an uncensored, off-the-cuff talk about eBooks. This is whatcha get! We laughed a LOT… but please don’t listen if easily offended.


In addition to good words by all about some aspect of taming ebooks with a whip and a chair, Dan Sawyer talked about smashwords and openoffice on his blog, and pointed to a Linux Journal article on Calibre open-source ebook management and mastering software.

    Umm…actually, the article I was talking about was “Epublishing the Open Source Way” in the July issue of LinuxJournal, which won’t be free for another 30 days. It’s a detailed going over of doing ebook layout in Sigil.

    The article on Calibre is still useful for someone who opens Calibre and feels utterly lost, however.

    Thanks for the fun gabfest :)
