Andreessen Horowitz, CrunchFund, Tencent Back Intelligent Social Address Book Everyme Everyme , a startup that plans to disrupt the address book, has announced $1.5 million in funding from an impressive group of backers including Andreessen Horowitz , Greylock , Michael Arrington’s CrunchFund, Chinese internet giant Tencent , SV Angel , Dave Morin , Joshua Schachter and Vivi Nevo . A graduate of Y Combinator’s Summer 20011 class , Everyme wants to reinvent the way you experience your mobile address book. Co-founder Oliver Cameron (fellow co-founder is former MySpace engineer Vibhu Norby) tells me that the address book is ‘incredibly broken,’ and that there has been ‘little to no innovation’ taking place that has made a meaningful impact on the user experience. Everyme, which will launch its iPhone app in November, allows you to import your contacts from your phone’s address book and match this data from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. EveryMe will do all the hard work on the back-end, including reconciling duplicates.

About Open Books O'Reilly has published a number of Open Books--books with various forms of "open" copyright--over the years. The reasons for "opening" copyright, as well as the specific license agreements under which they are opened, are as varied as our authors. Perhaps a book was outdated enough to be put out of print, yet some people still needed the information it covered. Or the author or subject of a book felt strongly that it should be published under a particular open copyright. Maybe the book was written collectively by a particular community, as in the case of our Community Press books.

As a voracious reader with bibliomaniacal tendencies, I welcome any tool that helps me to manage what I'm reading and, perhaps more important, what I'm going to read next. Next Read by Square Wheel Software is aimed at readers who find themselves struggling to remember the name of that novel a friend recommended the other day or the author of that fascinating new biography they heard about on BookTV . The app for the iPhone and iPod Touch is in some ways elegant, but an imperfect solution for managing your reading--in short, a great premise stumbles in the exposition. Next Read's interface is clean and reasonably simple to navigate, with a crucial exception (about which more below). Next Read for IPhone - PCWorld
Writer Neal Stephenson Unveils His Digital Novel The Mongoliad The company, based in Seattle and San Francisco, has developed what it calls the PULP platform for creating digital novels. The core of the experience is still a text novel, but authors can add additional material like background articles, images, music, and video. There are also social features that allow readers to create their own profiles, earn badges for activity on the site or in the application, and interact with other readers. Stephenson said in an interview that this material is an extension of what many science fiction and fantasy novels already offer.
