Kindle Chronicles Podcast Interview Questions for Ryan Block

Ryan Block, co-founder of gdgt

A month after the original Kindle launched, you wrote, “We can’t quite put our finger on it, but if Kindle’s launch feels at all to you like the act of reading has just turned a major corner, we’re on the same page.” If you’d known then what you know now, how would you have revised that characterization of the Kindle’s significance?

Did you own a RocketBook?

Can you now reveal how you were able to publish in Engadget on Sept. 11, 2006, photos and specs of the original Kindle, more than a year before the launch?

Do you still consider Search to be the killer e-book app?

What’s been the most surprising development that you didn’t see coming when you were liveblogging the Kindle launch on November 19, 2007?

I’m surprised that Engadget still is not available on the Kindle. Doesn’t it make sense to pay 99 cents a month for the convenience of getting the blog on Kindle? Does that really undermine free availability on the web?

What’s your experience reading on iPad versus Kindle? Which iPad reading app do you prefer?

What do you want to see next in the Kindle?

I can’t read an ePub book I buy for nook on other ePub readers – Sony and Kobo. It does work the other way. How come ePub gets touted as the emerging standard when it accounts for such a small share of eBook market – probably 10 to 20%?
