FEATURED WEBINAR: Amazon vs. Apple: eBook Platform Debate

Thursday, September 15, 1:00pm EDT.

Joe Wikert (GM and Publisher, O'Reilly Media)
"This will be like shooting fish in a barrel. When I said I'd like to see a debate about Amazon vs. Apple's ebook platforms and said I'd take the Amazon position I never thought I'd find someone who would represent Apple! Shortly after that, Amazon announced their Kindle Cloud Reader initiative. Wow, yet another point for my case! I have loads of respect for Kassia Krozser but she's got her work cut out for her. I'm very much looking forward to the debate as well as addressing questions from the audience."

Kassia Krozser, (proprietress of BookSquare.com)
"Joe may wish he chose the Apple side! I won't deny that Amazon has many strengths, but they also have an amazing weakness: selective vision. The Kindle platform is based on an old, creaky format. Apple gets the web, and it gets the technology, hardware and software, that runs the web...which, we all know, will expand both our ability to read all kinds of books in digital format *and* our definition of a 'book'."
