San Francisco, CA, United States, 2007/02/27 - GoodStorm, the online e-Commerce provider, has expanded their reseller storefront product offerings to include eBooks with the release of UnConventional, YearlyKos: 'Citizens, Focus and Action'.
Unconventional chronicles YearlyKos, the 2006 convention for that brought DNC power-players together with thousands of DailyKos bloggers and readers. The convention caused a media stir by attracting Democratic Party leaders like Harry Read and Howard Dean, and proved a watershed event that firmly established the influence of “Netroots” activism on political discourse and policy. The YearlyKos eBook is sold as a PDF download exclusively through their GoodStorm storefront.
It retails for $17.99 and proceeds benefit the upcoming second-annual YearlKos Convention in Chicago, August 2 – 7th, 2007.
The eBook documents almost every aspect of the 2006 convention, from caucuses to keynote speeches, from volunteers to political heavy-hitters, including many Kos bloggers, and political power-players in attendance, including Barbara Boxer, Wesley Clark, and George Lakoff. "We selected GoodStorm to be our eBook internet sales outlet because of their low fees and commitment to helping the YearlyKos Convention in realizing our mission.
GoodStorm truly lives up to their tagline of "Capitalism Done Right". We're definitely going to expand our use of GoodStorm." Says Raven Brooks, the Operations Director of the YearlyKos Convention. Yobie Benjamin, GoodStorm founder and CEO, said, “As sponsors of the founding YearlyKos event, we were proud to be even a small-player in Netroots activism from its early days. Now, by offering eBooks as a low-cost, high-return item in our storefronts, our resellers can provide quality content to their visitors without the costs of printing or publishing.
And, because 70% of the retail price goes to the reseller, in this case YearlyKos, shoppers can feel good that their purchases are being used to ensure more breakthrough conventions that further strengthen our online community.” Digital media has been considered a thing of the future. But with this new partnership, it proves that digital media, like ebooks, are a viable media of the present.
