This is not a book, but it is a podcast

In which I and Tom natter on about all and sundry interactive media.


Like we say on the main podcast page:

This is not the future of the book is a podcast by Tom Abba and Baldur Bjarnason about interactive media, digital publishing, hypertext, storytelling of all sorts.

Subscribe to the podcast feed directly. Or on iTunes. Or, finally, on Overcast.

The first episode’s about an hour long and starts as a discussion on the importance of naming things. Hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it.

May contain swearing.

Do you ever wonder why a newly released open source project matters? Why it doesn't? How new or old standards or specifications affect your work? Why the web, tech, and publishing are the way they are?

This is an unapologetically political newsletter about tech, the web, and publishing—with context.

Because, to decide whether to use a piece of software, web standard, or open source project, you need to know why it‘s interesting, not just that it‘s interesting.

I won't send you spam. Unsubscribe at any time.
