For the last year, I’ve been doing a lot of freelance work for Threepress on Ibis Reader, their HTML5 e-book platform. The good news out this morning is that they have been acquired by Safari Books Online.
This is a great fit, because of their already-shared business, technology, and culture. Congratulations to Liza, Keith, Jonathan, and Chuck, who have all done great work, and will now be Safari employees. Xconomy has some sound bites from Liza and her new boss about the acquisition.
The down-side for me is that I will not be working as much with them now, but there may be some smaller projects, and I’m really glad to have had the year with them that I did.
PS: it isn’t mentioned in the new blurbs, but Ibis Reader is a Django project, so this is a big plus for Django and Python also.
