MacArthur Grant’s Missing eBook Man

Via Twitter from kottke:

MacArthur Fellows Program: Meet the 2008 Fellows

Commonly known as The MacArthur Genius Grant.

It’s criminal that David Rothman of TeleRead hasn’t been nominated and granted. He’s been banging the drum for eBooks, a standard global eBook file, and government/consumer eBook advocacy for years and years. TeleRead was the first eBook site I encountered on the Net and I’ve stayed with it since.

There’s not another person on the Net who has thought and about promoted the eBook cause like Rothman.

He should get a grant!
