Goals

Our primary goal is to deepen the effectiveness of the Internet & books together as a single unified resource that is both accessible and open.

Think is that web has changed a lot in the past ten years. Over 93% of Internet users go online using mobile devices that are not only touch capable but also unencumbered by limitations of a pointing device—mouse.

Bubblin is an effort to push books forward on to become a first class citizen of the web at some point in time. We want to quicken that process. We're building a bunch of open source tools and associated technology to produce native-class experience of books on the web. It is true that members of our community love reading well-formed books i.e. ones with beautiful typography, tightly formatted and responsive paginated content, a silky smooth page-transitioning experience that is critical to experience of books.

Note, all our books are also progressive single pages apps (pSPAs), meaning offline-first.

Thankfully, with modern web technologies all this is possible at scale now. Since our books can work in offline—mode i.e. without Internet connection we think that our technology we can bring a great change in the way that world has consumed ebooks.
