The Morning Coffee – 3 November 2014

Must read stories this morning include, well, everything. But I especially liked the post on authors who hate their readers, the need for an ebook DMCA exception, John Scalzi's take on NaNoWriMo, and what happened when Dear Author's tech blogger tried to review tablets.

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. Which would be more difficult to find?

    1) pirated content on Disney’s search engine
    or
    2) users willing to use Disney’s search engine

    • Yeah, Team Rodent’s idea of a search engine screams, “Bad Idea!” When I look up a movie title, I don’t want to go to the company’s advertising site. I want to go somewhere with real information about the movie, so I can decide if I want to spend money on it.

  2. If Disney wants people to use their filtering concept, it seems like the last thing they should do is patent it! And shame on the patent office for issuing a patent on what amounts to just a specific bit of filtering.

  3. Your “tried to review tablets” link in the summary paragraph goes to Scalzi, BTW.
