Rice U Press resurrected as e-only

Rice University in Houston is resurrecting it's ten-years dead Press. They are going to be publishing as they did in the past with a twist -- they will be fully digital. You'll be able to read for free online or buy a copy of the work as a downloaded file or as a print copy. They are working with the open source system Connextions for publishing and QOOP for printing. From the website QOOP appears to be a very young company.

Yes, I heard about this. It will be interesting to see if they can make this work as we keep hearing about the financial troubles of traditional presses.
