BookGlutton is the first social reading platform. It allows people to create virtual book groups, chat inside any chapter of the book, and share annotations (users attach a note to any paragraph and friends come through, see them, and respond). We launched the web-based reading system and social features in January 2008, and a paid catalog in September 2009. We also built a publishing platform, widget, mobile site and EPUB converter. My role was UX and design, as well as being heavily involved in biz-dev and strategy (it is a startup after all).
