Books in Browsers Conference – 21-22 October

The Internet Archive are hosting a conference in San Francisco next month, and they're topics for discussion. From the announcement:

The meeting will cover achievements in moving books to the web,
including developments in OPDS Catalogs, vending and lending,
and the design and effective deployment of ebooks and reading
experiences for web environments.  The portability of books and bookshelves, reader application interoperability, storage and
transmission security (including encryption and caching), the
legal and user consequences of book licensing vs purchase, and
ramifications for user privacy and data protection are viable
angles.

Currently, I anticipate that we will build a technical track,
and an uber issues track, with cojoined sessions among topics
that are conceptually early or rapidly evolving.

Is anyone planning to go?

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
