Amazon launches "Send to Kindle" button for web publishers and WordPress blogs

Amazon launches "Send to Kindle" button for web publishers and WordPress blogs | Digital Literacy for my students | Scoop.it
Amazon launched a “Send to Kindle” button that publishers can add to their websites. The Washington Post and Time are among the first to sign up.
Pierre Levy's insight:

The new feature for websites is the most recent in a line of read-it-later services Amazon has launched. Last year, the company announced a “Send to Kindle” button for Google Chrome, and later added support for Firefox. And users can already email files to their Kindles or transmit them using desktop apps. But the browser extensions — and now the web app for publishers — are Amazon’s effort to make the Kindle and Kindle apps an easy way to read all types of content, not just ebooks.

Attention toutefois à ne pas surcharger votre blog/site de plug-ins

Certes beaucoup sont très attrayants mais cela peut entrainer une dégradation des performances de votre blog/site

Where WordPress is headed: Longform content, curation and maybe even native ads

Where WordPress is headed: Longform content, curation and maybe even native ads | Digital Literacy for my students | Scoop.it
WordPress is going to curate more content and may focus on longform writing and even native advertising, CEO Matt Mullenweg said in a panel at SXSW Saturday.
Pierre Levy's insight:

“All the stuff that’s done really well on mobile has been incredibly short form and easily scannable,” Mullenweg told AllThingsD’s Kara Swisher. “I think there’s a space … to sit down and read something longer than a couple of seconds. Rather than the coffee line experience, what’s the sitting-down-in-the-back experience? We’re going to keep experimenting.”
