Along with Boing Boing, Wonkette and other well-known blogs, we’ve made Blogging Heroes—Michael Banks’ book, which Wiley will publish later this year. Mike likes our fight for e-book standards and against Draconian DRM, in addition to our library-related efforts.
Because of the nature of Blogging Heroes, Mike focused on me. So once again, I’ll remind you of the contributions of others, especially Robert Nagle, Branko Collins, Jon Noring and Garson O’Toole, not to mention Sadi Ranson-Polizzotti and newcomers such as Paul Biba.
Update: Robert and I will be accepting sponsors and advertisers to keep the blog sustainable without charging readers or going through the standard hassles of the usual nonprofits. The big condition, in every case, will be that people not lean on us to water down our stands. Publishers Weekly, our newest partner, has let me write exactly what I want in E-Book Report. Stay tuned for a PW blog post later this week on “DRM as a lit and biz toxin” (just David speaking for David).
