We have announced Open Road as our first customer for our special sales, promotional fulfillment platform for ebooks, we've called the Endpaper Engine. Open Road is an amazing publisher and we are absolutely thrilled to have them involved.

Some of you may already be aware of Enthrill. I know that some know us for our groundbreaking transmedia publishing project, One Child, while others know us for our ebook gift card retail program... In behind both those projects is a piece of technology called 'Endpaper Engine'. Endpaper Engine was developed to give us the ability to distribute ebook content to any device all from once source. Part of this is our PackaDRM technology, our optional cross-platform DRM solution. This fulfillment engine will be shaking things up over the coming months.

Great to see Guy Kawasaki using our ebook gift cards to promote his book on publishing! 
Trying this for the first time tonight at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.

It's a card that has a unique promo code. People go home and scratch off the back to redeem. I can also autograph the card--ala a baseball card, so it has an "analog" feel. 

Lots to like about this capability. Thanks +Kevin Franco and Enthrill for making this possible. 

Update: Just got back from Haas. People asked me to sign their card just like people have asked me to sign their book. This definitely works. 

Will be in New York next week during DBW - just setting up meetings to discuss digital delivery of ebooks with publishers through our Endpaper™ engine!

Here's my talk from the Books In Browsers conference at the Internet Archive this year. Released for the first time are some of the findings and results from our market evaluation in June at Safeway, Coop, Sobey's and Mac's stores... selling ebook gift cards in brick and mortar locations.
