The Book of Mpub: New Perspectives on Technology and Publishing

The Book of Mpub: New Perspectives on Technology and Publishing by Cari Ferguson
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0973872756 | 188 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

This project, comprising 21 short essays on the intersection of publishing and digital technology, was written, edited, designed and produced by the SFU Master of Publishing cohort of 2010.
The Book of MPub began over lunch with Monique Trottier just prior to Christmas 2009. We were casually brainstorming ideas for the Spring 2010 Publishing Technology course for SFU’s Master of Publishing Program, and Monique put her finger on an idea that worked on many different levels. Here was a self-contained project we could do on our own without needing to rely on anyone else’s material, production schedule, or agenda—and yet could expand in whatever directions we wanted to take it. Here was an opportunity not just to write a book, but to edit a book, produce a book (in lots of different formats, natch), promote and market a book, and—most importantly— to build a network of people around it.
