Wired has a Story on The Seybold SF conference that covers all things publishing, including a big focus on Ebooks. The conference web site has a nifty
Digital Library that has some useful information on technology.
\"E-book vendors will take over 11,000 square feet on the show floor to showcase their technologies and security solutions.
Microsoft (MSFT) will demonstrate its recently announced Digital Asset Server, a digital rights management (DRM) solution, and Windows-based PC Reader. \"

The e-book event follows an opening keynote address by Dick Brass, vice president of technology development for Microsoft. Brass will speak about digital rights management, anti-piracy, and encryption, some of the most hotly debated topics among e-publishers and authors.
\"Right now, there\'s a lack of standards on that front,\" Walter said. This year\'s event \"will recognize that there is a lack of standards in digital rights management that\'s hindering the adoption of e-books.\"
