He founded Librivox, a volunteer-based service, which takes public domain books and turns them into audiobooks.
He’s also co-founder of Book Oven, a new start-up that aims to be a collaborative space for making books. He’s also one of the people behind BookCamp, an unconference held in Toronto on June 6th.
