Custom Wikipedia and IMDB
What would you pay for custom e-book conversions
I've been fielding a LOT of requests lately for custom works in eBook format. Many of you have seen my 9/11 Commission Report. That work apparently gained the attention of several very large companies who want their material converted in a similarly-professional manner. In fact, so many are interested, that I've started another company to handle it (can't say anything more on that right now).
Judging from the comments to the article at MobileRead, it sounds like he is aiming at two high quality products. If you are interested, go tell him what you would expect from the product and what you would be willing to pay.
But two of the largest works we've been asked to do, are the Wikipedia and IMDB, in a standalone mobile format.
Wikipedia required a LOT of rehandling of the upstream MediaWiki source, which I updated to fix quite a few problems. The approach taken by EVERY other attempt to get this Wikipedia content into a manageable format for the Palm size/memory, is wrong. I've seen several Perl scripts that try to take the SQL dump and translate that back into HTML. Bzzt.
