The Bookseller launches first FutureBook Hack

FutureBook Hack will challenge teams to solve problems facing the publishing industry, from discoverability to analytics to new reading formats.

Teams can be made up of developers, designers, engineers, programmers and entrepreneurs; together, they will be asked to make prototypes, build apps or design new software. Last year’s Perseus-run Publishing Hackathon focused on discoverability. It was won by a team called “Evoke”, whose idea was to build a discovery engine based around fictional characters.
