A substantive review of the Kindle as a reading medium, and the continuing need to optimize the presentation and editorial design of content to fit the display medium. I fully accept the need to structurally separate content and display in modern "web standards" designs. But the tools for optimizing presentations for particular digital media are still relatively crude, and often leave you wondering which media to truly optimize for (screen, print, mobile, etc.), and which media will "degrade gracefully" to a less optimal experience. This is especially true as newer display devices like the Kindle and Apple iPhone blur the distinctions between the "screen," "handheld," and "print" experiences.
