On The, uh, World Wide Web

Surely this is the most inane first line of any article written in 2009? Late 2009, no less.

Book publishers are learning to love the Web. They have to.

    And we wonder why BusinessWeek is for sale.

    Completely agree Kassia – this is an inane comment. Some of us independent publishers are embracing the web and using it to bring books to life. Why settle for a PDF when ebooks can be so much more – like animated illustrations, read along to the audio as the words highlight, click on a word to hear it spoken, interactive quizzes and games, realistic automatic page turning. The web allows us to bring books as a new reading experience and make it fun too.
