Indie book publishing platform PressBooks goes open source, embraces print

A year ago, Hugh McGuire, the founder of PressBooks, was ready to give up. “I was ready to just quit because it was so frustrating,” he says of his latest startup, which allows people to use a simple blog-like content management system to publish ebooks – for free. But a lot has happened in 12 months. “We’ve stuck at it, the market’s moved a little bit, and the product’s a bit better,” says McGuire. “We’re now on the cusp of really making a difference in the world.”
