booktwo.org   The blog of James Bridle: literature, technology and book futurism, since 2006. The book is dead. Long live the book. Founded in September 2006, booktwo.org exists to investigate, analyse, catalogue and debate the future of literature and the publishing industry. Booktwo.org was founded out of a frustration with the failure of trade publishing to engage with new media and technology, a frustration reflected in the first essay: Birth Pangs of a new Literature. Over time, the industry has started to change, but booktwo.org continues to champion and challenge new literary forms and new publishing models.
