We believe that the traditional publishing industry – the books and magazines of today – is undergoing one of the most disruptive changes it has ever seen. And we believe that this disruption will provide an unparalleled opportunity to re-think what it means to consume content in this digital age.
Yes, the idea of an “ebook” was introduced a few years ago. But today’s these ebooks are simply digital versions of the same reading experience we have had for 100s of years. We fundamentally consume the information the same way as before – now just on a tablet.
But what if we re-thought this idea completely? What if we merged the “content” that a book provides with the “experience” enabled by todays next-generation computing platforms like Apple’s iPad and the Amazon.com Kindle Fire? What amazing experiences could we create?
This is what Nation9 is focused on: building interactive ebooks the provide a better reading, learning, and gaming experience by creating content at the intersection of all three. This is not an easy challenge – but it is a challenge we believe is one that is worth taking on to see where the journey will take us.
And believe this is a journey we can all take together – to learn, explore, discuss and debate what the future of these combined interactive experiences will be.
And we invite you to come along with us.
