Flat World Knowledge, a publisher of open textbooks

Thanks again to Peter O’Kelly for this reference. This new company, Flat World Knowledge, is looking to make books free online, in HTML and PDF formats, but available for a fee published – on demand, which would be the primary revenue source.

The philosophy behind the business:

Publishers need to be device-agnostic in the broadest sense. The printed book is one of the devices we target.
