So this happened…

I’ve been working with the Standard Ebooks Project for a few years now and it turns out I’m among the top contributors. So as a reward we got promoted 🙂

I’ve talked about the project and listed my ebook contributions previously (2019 update and the 2020 update) but briefly “Standard Ebooks takes ebooks from open-sources repositories like Project Gutenberg, formats and typesets them using a carefully designed and professional-grade style manual, fully proofreads and corrects them, and then builds them to create a new edition that takes advantage of state-of-the-art ereader and browser technology.”

Alex, the founder, wanted to try and build in some support as the project has been growing by leaps and bounds so he has made the shift to a non-profit (it’s way more complex than that in reality) and invited a core group of us to help represent the project. As the project gains more and more momentum in the broader community he is trying to negotiate the shift from self-funded hobby to a full-time commitment. Wish us luck and be sure to check out the growing list of books.

Oh and feel free to contribute…
