Sure I still want it! I'll rephraze my original questions here.

I'm doing a research of LFS for my studies (Arts & Cultures at the 
university of Maastricht). I'm focusing on the differences between a 
regular book (which you buy at a store or rent at a library) and the 
so-called "e-book". I'm not sure what the e-book is, but I do know that 
LFS is an example of how it could look. 
1. Could you describe how you started with the book, what interested you 
in it? 
2. What do you think about the format and distribution of the book? Do 
you think it's practical if LFS would be printed? What gains/losses 
would there be? What are the biggest advantages of not having it 
3. In traditional books, there's a big difference between reader and 
writer. With LFS, it's a blurry line. Do you think of yourself as 
reader or writer?

If you're interested, I'd be willing to explain some more on where my 
research is going to, and perhaps even post it when it's ready.

Thanks for any input you can give me.
