both tallskinnykiwi and steve taylor are excited about the kindle single format for books - the argument is that digital formats suit shorter lengths. i think there is a lot of truth to this so it will be interesting to see what transpires...

Yep - I'm about to post my late grandfather's stories via Kindle format - a fascinating account of how US college and amateur athletics changed in the 20th century (he coached in the 1936 Olympics for example) - this way I can test to see if there's any interest in having me develop any of these stories further without having to shell out any money to self-publish the sucker.
I'm also psyched that this creates a more horizontal format where anyone who feels they have something to say can get it out here. This is especially true as traditional publishing outlets are getting very skittish about taking risks. Then using social networking and blogging platforms, one can chat up the project.
Wonder if some Proost PDFs might be good candidates for this format?
