    Leanpub / Lean Publishing

    I don't know if this outfit has a notation in the display sites thread.

    Link: https://leanpub.com/

    Does LeanPub just look like another display site, or is there something more egregious going on? I'm not that impressed by crowd-sourced editing, and what they're doing here appears to violate first rights sales clauses, too. Why on earth would a writer want to post first drafts, anyway?

    Anyone have any dealings with them yet? They're apparently a corporate sponsor of CampNaNo.

    Here's a good discussion from Adam Engst

    http://tidbits.com/article/13720


    I'm interested in some of their tools, less so for recursive publication than for ease of use; Engst's discussion of the tools is a good one.

    Leanpub do strike me as geeks interested in publishing, rather than publishing folk interested in better tools.

    See their Manifesto.
