A visit from Peter Yianilos

After taking a chance trying to reach out to eBookMan’s lead developer/designer Peter Yianilos and inviting him to visit the website, he was gracious enough to reply to me.

During our e-mail conversation together, he shared with me his experience in receiving the first annual Frankfurt E-Book Technical Achievement award for his work on the eBookMan.

I think it was wonderful to see that the fledgling e-book industry of the time recognized the superior thought and execution that went into making this ground-breaking handheld device.

Here are some photos Peter has given me permission to share:
