MIMS Final Project 2014


FuturePress aims to explore new ways of distributing digital content. Building off our previous work with our open source browser based reader Epub.js, it's meant to be a radical departure from the current Amazonian model of a centralized store. We are exploring concepts such as, “streaming books,” financially incentivizing people to share and discover new works, decentralized store fronts (everyone who can post a link on the internet can be a store), making books into a sort of cryptocurrency, and trying to build an economic model around the economy of ideas.
