Hello, Columbus!

I am leaving for Columbus, OH, USA this afternoon, to go to the World Fantasy Convention. I will try to post daily updates from the con, but before I get into full con mode, I will say that if you have not looked at the video of the new Color Nook, you should. It's a excellent illustration of the way digital publishing is branching out. Barnes & Noble plans to keep making its e-ink (black-and-white) version but also to offer this color, larger screen version that is all LCD and full color, to take advantage of color and the ability to run apps for children's books and magazine.

Ebooks are not Highlander. There can be more than one platform, more than one solution.
