My Media Hacks alum, Hugh McGuire stopped by to tell me about his interesting new company, PressBooks, a new tool to let authors and publishers create books via WordPress and some other magic. Hugh’s been in this space for a while, maybe even before his project Librivox. The premise of what Hugh’s doing now is that he’s figured out a way to take a content management system like WordPress and push the output so that it can be made into a much nicer version of a PDF file, an epub format, XML, and several others.
This interview runs a little long, but it’s really interesting. If you’re thinking about self-publishing, or if you’re interested in one spin on the future of the business of publishing (at least digital), check this out:
