Photographer Toso Dabac goin’ digital… Powered by Blur!

April 27, 2008

I’m spending about 8-10 hours per day online, and when it’s about magazines, I’m always trying to track them as fast as I can… and after many years of traveling through the streets, channels and highways of internet I find myself very often overloaded… overloaded with classical interface…

People usually have prejudice to electronic media because there is nothing (at least for now) that can imitate the way real books look in a sense of touching and browsing it… No, I’m not going to write an article about cool thingz we all saw in some episode of Star Trek when Captain Janeway was relaxing in her quarters …

Having an electronic book that will visually imitate the way real book look like was always reserved for web designers or companies selling their new software product. Well, what then about a classical user willing to make an e-book or e-monograph, but being pretty broke for paying the latest ‘absolutely super new product for teleporting you into the new dimension of publishing’?! Nope, if you don’t have extra money to pay for a certain ‘e-look’ you are out of being digitally ‘e-cool’…

Last year a service called Issuu – You Publish totally embellished the way I perceived e-books and electronic media in general… the first part of the year the service was based on free invitation cards for a small community, but after a while they decided to built up their capacity for larger number of users… and seems like the whole thing is working now on ‘high hills’ which is nice to see…

Very recent I’ve discovered a pretty cool Croatian e-magazine entitled Blur, in English by the way… they are not using anything of free services, only Flash based thingz…
