It’s finally here. But does it live up to expectations?September 17th, 2012 by Tommaso De Benetti
On Wednesday last week, after two years of increasingly feverish rumors and speculation, the wait was finally over. All over the world, people stopped what they were doing and tuned in to find out whether it could possibly live up to the hype.
The answer, my friends, is an emphatic “yes.”
Slim enough to fit in your bag, visually stunning and packing a real punch under the cover, the original hardcopy version of Short Stories About Tiny Tasks made a real splash when we released it last year (at least when it fell in the bath).
But on Wednesday, the future became reality. Now, thanks to Publification.com, Short Stories About Tiny Tasks, a collection of our favorite Microtask blogs, is also available as an ebook from the Amazon Kindle Store and iBooks (see sidebar for more links).
As expected, pricing starts at $199 for the… OK, actually, there are some pricing issues. We wanted the book to be free. However, due to the territorial policies of Amazon, you might see it with a price tag of 0,89€ or more, depending on which URL and account you use to access the Kindle Store. Rest assured that this charge is not fundraising for the island or zeppelin-mounted death ray I’ve been saving for. It’s just that in some countries we can’t price it at zero.
