How It Works. Social Cyclists find and unlock bikes using their mobile phones, or unlock them by entering their account information directly into the keypad on the lockbox. A central server verifies e...

Fascinating article about the book publishing business.

"Book publishers could have a future. Beyond controlling access to the marketplace, book publishers provided one other, very valuable service to authors - book editing. And the demand for editing, guidance and advice for authors is growing as the number of authors grows. Book publishers could find ways to transition their business models to serve the growing number of eBook publishers, instead of hoping that Barnes & Noble shuts them out. But it's becoming clear that they won't."
