Welcome to the Online BookStore (OBS)! Here, we make online books and ideas available to people worldwide, with the goal of exploring and helping to define the new business of thinking publicly in the distributive, recorded environment of the Internet. Not a bookstore in a traditional sense, you will find that OBS uses the medium to enhance our role as facilitators in the evolution of online recorded thought, or "online publishing," in the following ways:
Since then, OBS has grown to include many new titles, from publishers big and small. In a continuing effort to enable the ideas within books, and the readers of those books, to best gain from the dynamic online medium, we customize our strategy for each publication, based on the content of the book and the needs of the readers. We aren't making "cookie-cutter books" where every posting follows the same format. As you see in the Tour of the Store, our approach to online publishing reflects both the dynamic state of the Internet as a publishing medium, and the individual contents of each book.
This customization process has led us into the fields of teaching, writing, and consulting, but throughout all, the focus remains consistent: OBS's goal is to identify, facilitate and develop the customized access to ideas and information which is the new terrain of online publishing. Towards that goal, we rely on reader participation in our site, and therefore welcome you to the process that is the OBS.
