We've been muddling over how exactly to support the burgeoning demand for ebooks. As a publisher, it's a hugely confusing mix of readers (like Stanza), devices (like Kindle, Sony Reader, and the iPhone) and formats (like PDF and Epub). Our ebook strategy is a work in progress: we'd love your input on our current plan:

In his hour long webinar, Nathan will be covering many of the topics in his new book, Design Is the Problem, which, along with the recorded version of the webinar, is included in the ticket price. Hope you'll join us at 1pm EDT tomorrow!

It may be old news for those of you who subscribe to Communication Arts (confession: we don't), but the first Rosenfeld Media title's cover—Indi Young's Mental Models—was one of seventeen covers featured in their latest Design Annual issue (November 2008). We absolutely love working with our covers' designer, The Heads of State, and were so pleased when they recently moved to our home town (Brooklyn, NY).

We're thrilled to announce that Dave Gray, chairman of XPLANE, founder of the VizThink conference, and mind behind the Unbook, has joined Rosenfeld Media's strategic advisory group. Dave can't help but stretch each medium he touches, and we look forward to his thoughts on how we might reconsider and improve the books (un- or otherwise) we produce. Welcome, Dave!

Our next UX Book Salon will take place bright and early (8:30am) this Sunday at the IA Summit's Flex Track Room (AKA the Venetian Room). Bring the UX books you love and hate (yes, even Rosenfeld Media titles), and be prepared to discuss why. We'll give a few of our own books away, and maybe even spring for some bagels. Follow @rosenfeldmedia on Twitter for late-breaking updates. An RSVP would be appreciated!

Last month, Bill Scott taught an excellent Future Practice webinar, "What Every Designer Should Know about Interface Engineering". He really nailed the topic, and you can see from his interview that he has a knack for getting a great discussion going. The 76-minute DRM-free webinar recording is now on sale; watch and listen on your iPhone or with dozens of your closest colleagues at your next company brown bag.

Next webinar up is on sustainable design, March 25, with Nathan Shedroff.

We've broken down and signed up: follow "rosenfeldmedia" to keep up with all the news (and discounts) fit to print in 140 characters or less. Um, we mean, 140 characters or fewer.

We've updated our Rosenfeld Media events calendar; here are a few highlights (and some nice discounts) from the coming conference season:

Nathan Shedroff's amazing career has taken many twists and turns; most recently he's emerged as one of the design world's most effective advocates for ensuring that our products and services are designed with sustainability in mind.

Aside from being a wonderful teacher (read Core77's coverage of his recent talk at the aptly-named Compostmodern event), he's persuasive; in fact, he recently convinced Rosenfeld Media to stop our practice of individually shrink-wrapping our books.
