I'll be blogging about how I'm creating an open publishing company. What needs to be done, achievements, frustrations, ramblings. I'm interested in shedding light on what it means to work open and work together. Bumps and all.

The idea to start an open publishing company came to me in the opening session of OpenEverything Toronto, in June 2008. At that point I was still trying to wrap my head around what "open" meant. It began with a flash of excitement as I saw all the ways public domain content could be remixed and repackaged. At that point I was imagining artist's books, beautifully designed with impeccable typography. Those sensual, compelling books that you have to bring home and touch and take in every word and letter and curve.
