    2. As more and more parts of the world became literate, new technologies, above all paper and print, increased the reach and influence of written stories. Both inventions lowered the cost of literature, which meant that new groups of readers could have access to written stories. And new readers meant new stories started to appear, catering to these readers’ tastes and interests.
    1. A number of incunabula mention that 300 copies were printed, though this figure may have become formulaic. Most scholars assume that despite contextual variations, print runs generally increased during the sixteenth century—1,000 is often used as a ballpark estimate.181

      Print runs of the earliest books by publishers may have been around 300 copies going up to 1,000 copies during the sixteenth century. Compare this to 10,000 copies today to reach "best seller" status.

    1. “I could fit this in my pocket,” I thought when the first newly re-designed @parisreview arrived. And sure enough editor Emily Stokes said it’s was made to fit in a “large coat pocket” in the editor’s note.

      I've been thinking it for a while, but have needed to write it down for ages---particularly from my experiences with older manuscripts.

      In an age of print-on-demand and reflowing text, why in goodness' name don't we have the ability to print almost anything we buy and are going to read in any font size and format we like?

      Why couldn't I have a presentation copy sized version of The Paris Review?

      Why shouldn't I be able to have everything printed on bible-thin pages of paper for savings in thickness?

      Why couldn't my textbooks be printed with massively large margins for writing notes into more easily? Why not interleaved with blank pages even? Particularly near the homework problem sections?

      Why can't I have more choice in a range of fonts, book sizes, margin sizes, and covers?

    1. ​La forme de cet écrit est multisupport : à l’écran et imprimée, mettant en action les outils développés par les designers que j’étudie dans cette réflexion. Et, le propos sur l’édition à plusieurs est actionné par les commentaires de chaque lecteur disponibles sur la version numérique.

      Les commentaires et échanges ne sont donc visibles que sur la version numérique ? Puisqu'on parle de web to print, ce serait intéressant que l'écrit augmenté soit aussi présent dans la forme imprimée. En terme de mise en page, cela pourrait donner lieu à une forme intéressante des échanges : en fin d'ouvrage ? ou entrecoupant les différents chapitres ? ou encore directement en face de l'écrit d'origine pour confronter deux textes ? Chaque nouvelle impression serait comme une réédition, une édition qui s'écrirait sans cesse dans le temps.

    1. Patricio R Estevez-Soto. (2020, November 24). I’m really surprised to see a lot of academics sharing their working papers/pre-prints from cloud drives (i.e. @Dropbox @googledrive) 🚨Don’t!🚨 Use @socarxiv @SSRN @ZENODO_ORG, @OSFramework, @arxiv (+ other) instead. They offer persisent DOIs and are indexed by Google scholar [Tweet]. @prestevez. https://twitter.com/prestevez/status/1331029547811213316

    1. and serve as pre-prints to work that may live later on, or always exist in their current format

      Thinking of a personal site as a pre-print server is an interesting concept and somewhat similar to the idea of a commonplace book.

    1. Africans in the Atlantic world, printed discourse was part of a larger "racial complex" that both supported imperial plantation systems and denied people of color equality in the civic realm. This racial complex was constituted in a variety of printed forms, from slave laws stored in dusty bookshelves to denigrating racial labels in popular plays, novels, and pieces of travel writing. By the latter half of the eighteenth century, however, a vanguard of black writers, readers, and letter writers came to view printed discourse as a potential means of surmounting racial oppres sion. According to the literary scholar John Ernest, letters, literacy, print, and the book all became part of a "liberation historiography"—a "specifically textual" response by black writers to racial hierarchies established not only in law and politics but in print.

      This section truly highlights the contradictory nature of the print medium as an information technology that was used by imperial whites to marginalize black voices and on the other hand was used to by black writers to tackle, overcome racial oppression and reclaim the black voice.

    1. Digital logics can be a bit more pushy than print logics. So much for the supposed freedom of electronic literature

      I think you're right to hedge this point with "can be." I'd argue that "electronic literature" can take a bazillion different forms, some more "pushy," some less "pushy" than ink-on-paper print texts (with regard to their ordering "logics"). I'd therefore urge reformulating your point more along these lines: "The ordering logics of some digital genres [or: ... of some currently popular digital genres?] are in some ways more pushy and prescriptive than the ordering logics of many traditional paper-print genres."

    1. If Kriegeskorte is invited by a journal to write a review, first he decides whether he’s interested enough to review it. If so, he checks whether there’s a preprint available—basically a final draft of the manuscript posted publicly online on one of several preprint servers like arxiv and biorxiv. This is crucial. Writing about a manuscript that he’s received in confidence from a journal editor would break confidentiality—talking about a paper before the authors are ready. If there’s a preprint, great. He reviews the paper, posts to his blog, and also sends the review to the journal editor.

      Interesting workflow and within his rights.

    1. The case for print

      Not either/or for sure. Continuing to equate OER with traditional textbooks vastly constrains the power of OER and open education. How about helping students develop the skills and use the tools to work with digital media in much more powerful ways than is possible with paper?

    1. A similar project that explores the potential and limits of POD is AND's Variable Format: 'a sample book, a model, a serial system that explores the technological margins of print on demand and how reading is informed by the materiality of the book object'.

      This project has been conceived by Lynn Harris, published by AND and designed by Åbäke with Pierre Pautler:
