Format in use is ePub—nonDRMed. Hooray! Get it, B&N, Borders and Amazon? A new e-book ecosystem—not just involving Aldiko—is aborning on the Net without “protection” to pollute it. I just hope Aldiko will resist any buyout offers from Amazon. (Via PW.)
Disclosure: Both Mark and Tiffany Wong, an Aldiko co-founder, blog at times for TeleRead—which we see as an op-ed for e-book business figures among others. Yes, we’d love to have Amazon blogging here, too. All viewpoints welcome—as long as everything is transparent!
