I have been watching the growth of Print on Demand (POD) technology for a very long time. I first heard about it while working as a consultant for Xerox, and I was intrigued by the potential for high quality but affordable books. I thought POD had enormous potential for not just consumers wanting a small print run, but for educational and scholarly publishing as well. Unfortunately, there are a few corrupt “book publishers” out there, notably PublishAmerica. I’ll link to a long piece I’ve been working on, and add a post that shows just how incompetent, and greedy, PublishAmerica is.
