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."

  1. The buzzfeed article is a great read but it overstates the importance of the CCA.
    It deprecates the impact of underground comics and indies. And projects like MILESTONE. As bad as all the stuff he points out was (and still is) there is more to american comics than DC and Marvel. And more to their blandness than the long gone CCA. (I think being part of giant media conglomerates based in NYC might have just a wee bit to do with it.)

  2. It looks like ‘I’m Gilligan Mothafucka (On Public Relations)’ is no longer there…
