    A conversation with my friend Max Whitby, co-founder of TouchPress. While hiking the Miwok Trail in Marin, we discussed the future of content, community and technology — and the changing role of publishers in the new media landscape. Max thinks we’re becoming more like midwives: facilitators of meaningful interactions between authors and readers. It’s nice to see us both converge towards this new direction as long-time content producers -- and I look forward to learning from each other in our next experiments. Touch Press creates new kinds of books that re-invent the reading experience by offering rich media content that adapts dynamically to the reader's interests and experience. Many of their iPad titles have been selected as Editor’s Choice or App of the Week (e.g. The Elements, The Waste Land, etc.). Learn more at http://www.touchpress.com.

        Available on the iTunes App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id739281034 This new app presents definitive filmed experiments demonstrating spectacular, surprising and sometimes sublime properties of (almost) every element. What happens when a huge lump of highly reactive sodium is thrown into a lake? Or when an iron cannonball is dropped into a pool of liquid mercury? You can watch intense, wonderful and distressing reactions like these without burning down the house.  Filmed by BAFTA award winner Max Whitby in partnership with Theodore Gray, author of the original book and app The Elements, this is a beautifully conceived collection videos vividly demonstrating what makes each element unique.  As Gray explains: “The great thing is that all of these incredible reactions are finally collected in one convenient place for you to view in the comfort and safety of your iPad, so there’s very little danger of death by fire, dismemberment, or poisoning.” The Elements in Action works as a stand-alone app, but really shines when combined with the original app, The Elements. Once installed, these companion apps link together, allowing you to flip seamlessly between viewing the elements as objects of contemplation in the original app, and witnessing their dynamic properties in the second.
