Kindle Bound--3G4L

Just found out from my publisher that Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning(aka 3G4L) is bound for Amazon's Kindle. Very exciting news as I think the Kindle is the perfect vehicle for a book like 3G4L which needs constant updating. We don't yet know the exact data but I'll keep you posted.

In the meantime, you can keep up with all the latest on the Kindle from an insider in the publishing world by reading Joe Wilkert's Kindleville blog. It gives an interesting take on what is happening in publishing. We in the blogosphere tend to complain about the publishers not "getting it." Well now we have some publishers blogging about potential game changing technologies and it is interesting to read what they are saying and how they are reacting. Good and interesting read.

Joe also has a blog called Publishing 2020 which he calls "A Book Publisher's Future Visions of Print, Online, Video and All Media Formats Not Yet Invented." Again worth checking out in this blog he talks about how technology is impacting books and publishing.

great news Karl - I think this is a really exciting way to distribute content. Publishers should use every channel available to deliver content. Up next - distribution on the wii :)
