Social Book Project

I came across this today: the Social Book Project by the Institute for the Future of the Book.  It looks intriguing for those interested in a CommentPress-like “social reading” annotation platform without the hassle of self-hosting. It looks very easy to set up!  It won’t work, however, for .pdfs (since we were discussing this issue in reference to Jack’s project): the platform requires the uploading of a plain vanilla text in the epub format.
