Julie Blanc, from the awesome paged.js team, just did an amazing presentation at the Digital Publishing Summit (EDRLab) in Paris. Slides here.
So, I’ve been pursuing this dream for many years… every since I started rendering books in the browser using an ad-hoc collection of tools around 10 years ago…. then I instigated the book.js project (which unfortunately died due to lack of browser support of CSS Regions), and now… paged.js…
Built by the talented trio of Julie Blanc, Fred Chasen and Julien Taquet – it’s all open source and modular… there is a lot to this story, but we’ll get to that. Full release in a few weeks, this is a sneak peak:
This project is entirely funded by the awesome Shuttleworth Foundation.
Fred Chasen and Julie Blanc are in Athens with the Coko team and have been doing some exciting stuff… expect some pretty interesting updates very soon! Watch PagedMedia for news!
Some time ago I employed Julie Blanc from my Shuttleworth Fellowship to work for the PagedMedia project. Julie has been doing amazing work and just today released this incredible article about Page Floats:

A few weeks ago at MIT Press in Boston, we had our first Paged Media event. Julie Blanc (pictured below), who works for Paged Media, wrote up a post to flesh out her awesome presentation…highly recommended reading if you enjoy geeking out about all this stuff:
