Morning Links — Layoffs coming soon to Nook Media?

About Joanna Cabot (1592 Articles)
"I’m a journalist, a teacher and an e-book fiend. I work as a French teacher at a K-3 private school. I use drama, music, puppets, props and all manner of tech in my job, and I love it. I enjoy moving between all the classes and having a relationship with each child in the school. Kids are hilarious, and I enjoy watching them grow and learn. My current device of choice for reading is my Amazon Kindle Touch, but I have owned or used devices by Sony, Kobo, Aluratek and others. I also read on my tablet devices using the Kindle app, and I enjoy synching between them, so that I’m always up to date no matter where I am or what I have with me."

  1. Jani Patokallio raises some interesting points in his HTML5 is better than ePub assessment. As these two standards converge, that assessment might become moot but there is still the question of the appropriateness of containers. If you look at an eBook as one kind of container and look at a web site as another kind of container, then the question of which is better for a specific goal arises. HTML5 has local storage so the online vs offline differentiator is considerably dulled. You don’t have to be online to view a web site that has been cached in local storage. So, how about volatility? Isn’t a web site more volatile than an eBook? Words can change on a web site at any time. Not so with eBooks? Now that eBooks have become version-able, perhaps not-so-much is a better answer. So what’s left?
