On-demand book publishing, promotion and e-commerce

Recommendations for Self-Publishing from Dr. Javier Vera:

clickbank.com: sell your product through their affiliate system

kunaki.com: CDs DVDs on demand

eFulfillmentService.com: offers a complete package of online order processing, storage and shipping

vervante.com: Vervante provides a produce-on-demand solution for books, DVDs/CDs and kits –they ship orders worldwide.

For Art/Photo books I recommend San-Francisco based Blurb. I’ve made a few books with them and always been satisfied.

Lulu offers a similar service but not as focused on the needs of art photographers.

Nanosolar: innovation from california

Thomas L. Friedman would be proud of this solar power innovator based in San Jose.

Their new panel factory in germany is automated to sustain a production rate of one panel every ten seconds, or an annual capacity of 640MW when operated 24×7. Nanosolar also today announced that serial production in its San Jose, California, cell production factory commenced earlier this year.

Nanosolar has added new capital and brought its total amount of funding to date to just below half a billion U.S. dollars…

crossbrowsertesting: What happened to free?

These guys have a great product and might really give LitmusApp a run for their money. But it’s no longer free.

“5% paid number in a freemium model is a great percentage traditionally, it only works if you have thousands upon thousands of users (ie Flickr, etc) – it does not work in an industry such as the web design area with a focused audience where we see hundreds of users per day.”

via crossbrowsertesting.com Blog: What happened to free?.

NEW: Bookmarklet. I’ve been using theLitmusApp bookmarlet for a while and it’s great. but this allows you to jump right into using a virtual environment OR taking screenshots.

What is really cool about the whole thing is how it can change your workflow in testing. You can work on a site and get it to your liking and two clicks later you can look at that site in IE6, Opera or Chrome. You can even run screenshots.

Panorama: Inside Grand Central Terminal

NYTimes: A great panorama from Grand Central Station.

Inside a cramped brick room in the train station are the greasy innards of a hundred-year-old clock with a stained-glass dial, the largest of Grand Central’s timepieces.

Twitter favorites “favstar”: A Florida woman gave birth …

i found a new way to surf the best of twittersphere

“A Florida woman gave birth to a baby 9 days early at 9:09 in the morning on 9-9-09. But, get this, 8 lbs. 4 oz. LAME.”

“Half of the appeal of staying up late is the total absence of morning people.”

“I just solved world hunger! Or at least my hunger. I assume it’s scalable.”

Twitter favorites: favstar/ Tim Siedell.
