You can write stuff in Perl to deal with a lot of that.
What role has lack of a common eBook format had? Has that held back the growth of the market? As long as they have a device that works, they can buy their books on that device, and they can read them whenever and wherever they want to.
On the eBook side, EPUB has been touted as this universal format, like you mentioned, but Barnes and Noble puts their proprietary spin on it. Apple puts their propriety spin on it, including DRM.
Then you have iBooks Author coming out from Apple which is a completely different format. I think what it comes down to is whether people can publish eBooks.
I think it would be a lot better for us to focus on helping people understand the market better, helping people understand that there are differences and what the benefits and detriments of different platforms are. Focus on getting people to read on the devices they have or in the way they want to read. Where are the devices going?
Amazon started with the Kindle and we have the other variants of the e-ink readers, but then Apple came out with the iPad and Amazon introduced the Kindle Fire and tablets seem to be becoming dominant. And then there are the color e-ink devices that are just starting to come out. Those are really good technologies for screens that I think will catch on in the next year or two.
In terms of the publishing industry itself, there seems to be a lot of resistance to eBooks and eBook publishing. Why is that? I think if you look at how publishing has grown over the years and how it got its start and how it got its foundations beneath it, the print side of things has been the key.
If you look at the models of the industry, you get the content from the creator, the author or whoever, then turn it into a print book. They got sideswiped by the Kindle in a sense — Amazon became the market leader just because they took an opportunity and ran with it. I think what happened was that the publishers said: Steve Jobs came out and said: We want to sell it on 99 cent terms.
The Language of Technical Communication
And when they approached the music industry with that idea, the music industry balked at it, but eventually they conceded. Amazon, on the other hand, in the eBook world has been painted as the evil empire. No one really complained too much, not at least the big music guys, when iTunes was selling 90 percent of music files, but when Amazon has 60 or 70 or 80 percent of the market, all the publishers see Amazon as evil, something to beat down, not as a company to co-ordinate with and to work with and help make the industry grow.
Some other companies, like Barnes and Noble, are coming up and starting to have some say in the market. Background Recently to try to get better sleep, I switched from reading my iPhone at night to a Kindle E-reader.
It turns out I really like reading from the Kindle E-reader, so much that I actually bought two of them the Paperwhite and the Voyager.
Reading from the Kindle feels more offline, so I can get immersed more fully in the content, rather than flipping back and forth between email, Reddit, Twitter, or other sites. He provides almost no biographical details about himself in the book, but based on my Linkedin search, he seems to be a lead writer at Palantir, which is a company in the Bay area that I actually toured when I moved out here.
Admittedly the book is short, but this is good.
From a technical angle, Etter argues that one should embrace lightweight markup languages, use static site generators, and store content in version control repositories with engineering code.
Etter also argues that writers should spend most of their time researching and testing content, investigating analytics, and iterating on the doc content on their websites.
Readings for technical communication
Contributors and lightweight markup languages With regards to documentation formats, Etter writes: … one of the tenets of modern technical writing is that everyone is a contributor. Rather than being mere deterrents like writing in XML , specialized applications actually prevent people from contributing. Amazing text editors are available on every operating system, mostly for free, and writers can use whichever they like.
Etter compares a simple passage in written in AsciiDoc with the same passage in Docbook.
Rather than embrace the lightweight formats for simplicity, Etter says technical writers need to encourage contributions from those who have deep, helpful product knowledge.
He says, The reality of the profession is that even a large team of writers cannot possibly know everything worth knowing about an application, and most companies do not have a large technical writing team. The open-source software movement, mod scene in PC games, and birth of a million obscure wikis have proven that people will happily share their expertise and passion if an easy, hospitable way of doing so exists.
