    Sample Book: Content types subgroup brainstorming - by Robin Seaman (March 11, 2013)

    The content providers we talked about:

    Person, Random House, Wiley, Springer, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster

    The content types we came up with -- these should be shared with that subgroup -- we'd show 2 pages per type

    K12 Education: math and history

    Higher Ed: Science (Chemistry, specifically, per Jim Allan) and Business

    Possibly world languages (because good to have something not English)

    Children's book (illustrated)

    Trade: Fiction/Nonfiction (nf with footnotes)

    Illustrated travel guide

    Sample assessment

    Dictionary

    Possible title (the whole working group should comment on/brainstorm on this);

    We thought of "Accessible ePub3 for Everyone" but Jim rightly noted that the word "Images" should be in the title.  So, maybe we change this to "Accessible Images for Everyone" along with a descriptive subtitle.

    We also had some ideas about the mechanics and production:

    • Robin will get in touch with Rick Johnson at Ingram about collaborating on this as a subcontract within DIAGRAM. They'd do the design, coding, production, etc.

    • I'm going to tet in touch with with George Kerscher and with Markus Gylling about having IDPF host it -- we need the hosting to be by a neutral entity (as Julie said, "Switzerland") so that publishers are OK with giving the content.

    We also talked about what would be in it, and came up with this:

    In addition to a small bit of narrative to hold it together, we should try for a punch introduction from Tim O'Reilly and a motivational foreword by Bill McCoy.  It'll have the samples, tips, and some sort of resources section.  Possibly, O'Reilly could ePublish it and provide as a free resource....
