Launching a new idea in a post-paper world

We'll update you once or twice a week, and we'll never rent or sell your email address to anyone. Thanks. Today my new manifesto Stop Stealing Dreams goes ‘on-sale’. On-sale is in air quotes because it’s free, but we don’t have a word for the on-free date. Ideas that spread are worth a lot–to the community and to the creator of those ideas as well. But what if there’s no book to buy? We still don’t have a good way to demarcate when a book ends and when something else (a manifesto?) For this project, my goal is to spread the idea, not monetize it. I’ve posted the manifesto as both a printable PDF as well as a PDF you can read on screen and as an ebook (in both sideloading Kindle and ePub/Nook format). Mechanics (wins and frustrations): I wrote the manifesto in Nisus, a fabulous word processor for the Mac. To create the printable PDF, all I had to do was change the styles, add a footer and “save as PDF”.

Creating the ebooks was a little trickier. Kickstarter. Books are now in your hands. Make Your Own Book, Create a Book Online, Custom Books.
