During this meeting I discussed the state of 3D, demoed a few HTML5 sites, showed an IFrame demo, discussed digital voices and discussed corporate verses academic e-learning.

David demoed one of his phone apps and tweelite.

Karina provided us with a discussion of EPUB3 and gave us the links below. I’m adding SQLite to the EPUB3 so we can turn each EPUB site into an LMS. Links below:

EPUB3 Links

  •  Lynda.com, “InDesign 5.5 to EPUB, Kindle, and iPad,” http://www.lynda.com/InDesign-CS5-5-tutorials/to-EPUB-Kindle-and-iPad/82258-2.html a good introduction to what EPUB structure and design best practices
  • Threepress Consulting: http://threepress.org/. These are definitely like-minded folks, who are passionate about expanding the concept of what books can be. They are developing open source EPUB3 software and created the Ibis reader, an HTML5 e-reader platform that is killer.  Their team has beengracious[a1]  enough to share code and tutorials (http://blog.threepress.org/) as well as presentation videos from the company’s founder, Liza Daly (http://threepress.org/speaking/). This is a must-visit site for anyone exploring where e-texts are headed.
  •  Institute for the Future of the Book: http://www.futureofthebook.org/ A think tank for “investigating the evolution of intellectual discourse,” this non-profit has a number of on-going electronic text projects and an archive of articles about, obviously, the future of books.
  • Open University: e-textbooks using EPUB3 on iTunesU
  •  HYPE: Mac OS HTML5 animations and interactive content: http://www.tumultco.com/hype/
  •  Calibre: E-book management

IFRAME Demo

 

Last meeting we discussed projects, epub, 3d, business games.

On this up coming meeting we will be discussing the state of 3D web (effect of global slow down), e-learning, David’s new demo, digital voices and e-learning format.

Also, we will be using Adobe connect today…the link is

Too bad this stuff is off limits to the majority of corporate America which uses IE.

This meeting was pretty simple. We brought in a new member Kyria and discussed what she would be doing. I talked about our upcoming project with Learn.com. Stuart discussed his financial project. Jonathan showed some more of his 3D art. And I discussed Karina’s project and sent her some reference stuff.

Today David and I will start working on Learn.com, Stuart and I will discuss his financial project, progress I have made, direction, and schedules.

Next, meeting we will most likely be moving to a larger place since we are starting to grow.
