Slicebooks is a platform and API for slicing, remixing and publishing ebooks, with the intention of providing publishers with the ability to ‘extend their long tail’. The theory of the long tail is to capitalise on offering as many niche low-selling products and services as possible that overall can be as profitable, if not more, as mainstream culture. Bots and automation are the perfect generative long tail culture makers. Clearly there is no intention to provide original quality books, instead, perhaps offering a confusing array of lookalike books, fakes and book extracts. Hopefully the system may also inspire some thought-provoking book remix concepts.
