WHAT'S THE FUTURE OF READING?
We're throwing a literary/publishing/library/books hackathon during the American Library Association conference in San Francisco on June 26-28, 2015.
It's called CODEX.
It's going to be epic.
It's a gathering of folks who want to imagine the future of books and reading. Programmers, designers, writers, librarians, publishers, readers. All are welcome.
