Rousting the Book Pirates From Google | The NY Times

Rousting the Book Pirates From Google | The NY Times | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Google Play has been criticized as a sort of vast and unruly garden compared with Apple’s impeccably mowed lawns. In Forbes recently, Erik Kain called Google Play “an ugly, poorly organized store filled with myriad knockoffs, dubious ‘games’ and other apps.” That sounds a bit harsh to the Haggler, a Google Play regular who has had mostly positive experiences.

That said, the site has problems.

JungleBook: Simple Kindle eBook Cover Analysis | The Digital Reader

JungleBook: Simple Kindle eBook Cover Analysis | The Digital Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
For those who were intrigued by the Slate article on similar book covers, here is a guest post by Jason van Gumster. I got myself good and distracted from my regular project work and ended up writing the start of a little script that I’m calling JungleBook. It makes images that are pretty and interesting… and might just provide a little bit analytical benefit. Story time Anyone else familiar with Pat David? Well, you should be. He’s a super-cool guy that who runs PIXLS.US, a site dedicated to photography with free and open source tools. However, that’s not why I bring him up. A few years back, he was playing around with using ImageMagick to generate an average blending of images. He’d pull in magazine covers, all the frames in different films and music videos, and portraits of U.S. presidents. However, what really got my attention was a piece he did wherein he averaged the top 50 suggestions that Netflix made to him, by genre. He did all of that a few years ago, but I only recently stumbled across that work… and it got me thinking (dangerous, I know). See, as I’ve been involving myself more with writing and designing [...]
