A next-generation digital book

Post by iSiZ

Our Choice is an ebook for the iPad and iPhone by Al Gore that includes many infographics and interactive data visualizations about solving the climate crisis. This is such a great way to present content and get the reader involved. Watch Mike Matas present it on TED:

 

Push Pop Press is a digital publishing technology which has recently been acquired by Facebook. They will be implementing Push Pop Press in Facebook. Read about what the co-founders of Push Pop Press say about this:

Last year Push Pop Press set off to re-imagine the book. We created a new way of publishing and exploring text, images, audio, video and interactive graphics, then teamed up with Melcher Media and Al Gore to create a new kind of book.

Although Facebook isn’t planning to start publishing digital books, the ideas and technology behind Push Pop Press will be integrated with Facebook, giving people even richer ways to share their stories. With millions of people publishing to Facebook each day, we think it’s going to be a great home for Push Pop Press.

Al Gore’s Our Choice will remain available for purchase, and we’ve decided that our future profits from the book will be donated to The Climate Reality Project. There are no plans to continue publishing new titles or building out our publishing platform that was in private beta. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported and expressed interest in Push Pop Press.

Both Push Pop Press and Facebook share a passion for improving the way we share and explore ideas and we couldn’t be more excited about what the future holds.
