Book is Now Available

Mediactive CoverI’m happy to say that Mediactive, the book, is now available in print (Amazon and Lulu) and in a Kindle edition.

And because this project lives under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license, I’ve also published it in full on this site. In addition, you can download it here as a PDF.

This is only the beginning. I’m working on an epub edition to use with other online services, and will be creating a variety of e-book editions that include other kinds of media. Beyond that, I intend Mediactive to be an ongoing, iterative process — with updates here on the website and, eventually new versions of the book itself.

Lots of people have helped me get this far on the journey. I thank you all, and look forward to the next steps.

  1. Mr. Gillmor,

    I’d love to buy (and read) your book, but I don’t have a Kindle, and I’m not interested in buying one.

    I do, however, own an Android device. I’d love to see your book on the Google eBook store.

    Any word on when (or if) this will happen?

    1. Andrew, I’m working on that — hope it’ll be soon! I’m also planning to create an Android app for the book as well.

    1. Yes, of course — download the Kindle app for Android and it works fine. (I use it myself on my Android devices.)

  2. Any chance of an ePub version? I’d love to do away with PDFs in my workflow completely, but ebooks seem to be stuck in 1995.

  3. Congratulations on the new book, which I greatly look forward to reading. I have published my earlier books through university presses, and my latest as an ebook via Smashwords. I’m interested to know any thoughts you’d be willing to share about publishing in print with Lulu. Many thanks for all your efforts.

  4. Congrats on the Book and its success so far.

    Quick note:Not sure if you are aware of this but the MediaActive PDF still has your MS Word meta data showing. This is usually what e-book apps like Calibre display once you load a PDF. (Microsoft Word – 4626145AFM.final11-30.docx)
    You *should* be able to edit that through “tools>options” on MS Word or just right click and edit on *nix based systems.

    Enjoy your Holiday, I am going to be reading your book WHEN i get snowed in:)

    1. @indicati — I didn’t realize that but will take a look! Not sure how to remove the metadata from the PDF, but I’ll look into it.
