paulphoto21News (1:31) – National Kindle Koffee meetup Saturday, June 6 at 10 a.m. local time – bring your Kindles!

Interview (10:25) – Paul Biba, co-editor of TeleRead and a way-early adopter of eBooks, back when he was a globe-trotting corporate lawyer.  He explains why he considers these early days of the eBook revolution so exciting, and why he and TeleRead owner David Rothman disagree on whether we should be afraid that Amazon will gain monopolistic power over the eBook industry.

    Len, thanks for your excellent podcasts – and for posting about the Kindle & Koffee Day on June 6.
