Both Travis and Aaron sat on the panel of Building a Better Web-Based Book last week at the Tools of Change Conference 2009. It was a great panel, with CJ Rayhill of Safari Books Online, Liza Daly of Threepenny Press, Ben Vershbow of the New York Public Library and Dave Gray of XPLANE. We talked about the social, aesthetic and technical challenges of reading online — Aaron and I were particularly concerned about the fact that books must continue be visually appealing and community-based, even online.
