Daily Thoughts 04/21/2013

This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.

I also started reading The Lean Entrepreneur How Visionaries Create Products, Innovate with new Ventures, and Disrupt Markets by Brant Cooper and Patrick Vlaskovits.  There is an introduction by Eric Ries.  The authors go over subjects like minimum viable product, fast agile development, and eating your own dog food.

How Deep has the Digital Backlist Gone
This is something which is interesting.  I think most older books are not ebooks.  The public domain books are being converted to ebooks, but there is a huge middle area of books which are still in copyright and not bestsellers.  This includes lots of material on how to do different activities.  A lot of nonfiction material would simply be eliminated if we assume that ebooks are going to cover everything.
