Scribd iPaper – Free Publishing In The Cloud

Look Mommy, There’s An Airplane

By now, this is old news, but I like this little display tool so much that I want to show it to you. It’s iPaper from, and it’s a fantastic way to publish and share documents online. It’s free for anyone to use. All you have to do is fly on over to their site and get started.

Personally, I love it. It’s like a plane – one look and you know exactly what it is and how to use it. It does what’s expected, having all the needed controls and nothing more, no fluff. This is the simplicity of intentional, elegant design.

And the price tag can’t be beat. Go ahead, try it out below!

Oh yeah, the subject of the iPaper… seems Congress finally realized that they needed to be serving video from somewhere other than their own servers, so it’s just a memo describing some things they want to keep in mind as they move video to the cloud. Just the usual stuff, like making sure it’s respectably presented. So I guess we can look forward to the Youtube Congress Channel, coming soon to a monitor in front of you!

Or not. Who watches Congressional video anyway?

I am Jon, and yeah, I confess… I watch’em.
