After all my disgust and ranting about Amazon, it's nice to see something happen that's good news for small publishers. DashBook Version 1 is available!
I've seen it, and (disclosure) I've worked on it, and I think it's going to be the key to changing my business enough to deal with Amazon's shenanigans. Heck, I may even go back to running my own bookstore, which I used to do until messing with ridiculous spreadsheets drove me bananas.
