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
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?
