Why are products like Instapaper and Readability so popular, and why minimalist layout designs are on the rise among the most followed webdesigners?
I think it's not (just) a matter of putting 'content first'. Neither it is (just) a matter of easily achievable responsiveness.
It's rather about the users context, the users motivations, and their need for processing and understanding informations.
Therefore, at the same time when books become digital, the Web looks at the traditional book as a legacy of rules and guidelines.
This workshop will explore the different aspects that must be considered to provide users with adequate digital reading experience, on the web as well as with ebooks.
