More later on this topic, perhaps, but I wanted to post this for now.
Is there truly no e-book version of Nicholas Negroponte’s 1995 book Being Digital?
What’s wrong with this picture?
The text I’ve circled in the image above is Amazon’s standard “Tell the Publisher! I’d like to read this book on Kindle.”*
Is this situation ironic? (It would seem so. It depends on your perspective on technology and traditional media, I suppose.)
Is it telling? (Perhaps.)
*My initial searching reveals there isn’t an e-book version available elsewhere, via any other retailers.
UPDATE: Here’s a new post — there’s an ebook available now!
