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.

O'Reilly Open Books Project

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 Perhaps a book was outdated enough to be put out of print, yet some people still needed the information it covered.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. But there's more to making Open Books available online than simply adopting an open license or giving up rights granted under copyright law. We're happy to have partnered with two innovative nonprofits, Creative Commons and the Internet Archive, to solve the licensing and digitizing challenges involved in bringing Open Books to readers.
