An e-book should be more like the recipes for non-meat loaf and a vegetarian shepherds pie

Ed Techie says that there will be or that there are no recipes in his blog so I will add another to mine: comparing Deliah Smith’s non-meat roast or vegetarian shepherd’s pie to the digitisation of a book.

If you digitise what was conceived as a book that makes it an e-Book; if you put an engine on a carriage it simply becomes a ‘horseless’ carriage. Back to this recipe or recipes, unlike the absolute of the book or even the e-book every time I make it I assemble slightly different ingredients and today, in error, left something major out while deliberate putting something else in. For an e-book to be like this it would not only need to be more blog-like, but also live, quasi-synchronous and collaboratively wiki-built.
