Kaboom in Book Form

Kaboom, one of the Milblogs I will be writing a chapter on, is going to be published by Da Capo Press end of this year or early next.

This is especially pleasing because he was censored and forced to take down his blog in June 2008. (Although, thanks to the wayback machine, google cache and the quick relaunch by Kaboom himself, the blog never really was offline.)

He hasnt commented on how they are going to solve the problems that surface when translating a blog into book form. Filling in the gaps with some background information and additional commentary by the blogger himself seems to be the most established solution.

It would be fun if an experimental publishing house combined some of the ideas of publishing hypertexts from the late 90s with blogging principles and came up with, I dont know, a Milblog in a Blogger-shaped Mamushka boxset or something.
