About Nate Hoffelder (10605 Articles)
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. Not sure if having a person from Sony (Wolfgang Fuchs) is the best if you’re going to have a rational discussion on DRM. This is the company that has continually insisted on proprietary hardware, media formats, and file formats and has a known track record for using invasive (and even destructive) DRM methods.
