In 2007 I collaborated with the Institute for the Book on a ‘networked book’ version of Gamer Theory, which was later published in the old dead tree format by Harvard University Press. That experience led all of us on a merry chase after solutions to many problems, some technical, some economic, some cultural. In this presentation I will sum up that experience and try to draw some lessons from it for future experiments that lie at the intersection of publishing, librarianship and writing, at a time when the boundaries between these professions are interestingly fluid.
