From Blog to Book

The Center for History and New Media at GMU’s One Week, One Tool initiative has released Anthologize:

Anthologize is a free, open-source, plugin that transforms WordPress 3.0 into a platform for publishing electronic texts. Grab posts from your WordPress blog, import feeds from external sites, or create new content directly within Anthologize. Then outline, order, and edit your work, crafting it into a single volume for export in several formats, including—in this release—PDF, ePUB, TEI.

ePUB support means that, among other things, Anthologize is a drop-dead simple way to collate openly licensed content from blogs around the web, remix it, and push out to iBooks on the iPad. Many congrats to Dan’s group for another awesome tool.
