Just a quick note to say that a condensed version of an interview that I did with Bob Stein back in March for The Public School NYC is now online at Triple Canopy as part of their ninth issue, which has several really interesting articles online so far and more to come. Most of what we talked about has been discussed at one point or another here; but there is a fair amount covered about the early history of electronic books that has never really been documented in detail. Should anyone want a full-length recording of the interview, email me.

In the interview, you say "DV: HyperCard had come out in 1989. "
I believe you'll find that HyperCard appeared in 1987.

i've wondered about all those specifics for years, so
thanks for divulging them in this revealing interview.
i have admired bob stein as salesman for a long time,
but now i'll admire him for turning down ms-money,
especially since apple was his friend in the early days.
if the full interview is available, i'd love to use it as
some sample material for some of my e-book apps.
let me know...
