Last night we bought the ISBNs for the Kindle and Nook versions of  Saving the Planet & Stuff, which should both be available the end of January. Thus, I was very interested to read the following quote from The Road to Discoverability at FutureBook:

“In 1990, there were about 900,000 ISBNs. Today there are 32 million ISBNs and an unknown number of unidentified books.” 

Well, if you’re the kind of person who likes company, I guess that’s a good thing.

If you read The Road to Discoverability, you will find a number of interesting terms. Of the following ones I saw–metadata, SEO, algorithm, and pixie dust–the one I have the best grasp of is pixie dust.
