In order to better understand the vast and ever-expanding world of online content, we need to learn how to speak its language: data. It is a language of numbers with its own grammar, punctuation and poetry. And it is data that makes letters searchable as well as discoverable.

Volker Oppmann
Founder, cultural entrepreneur
LOG.OS (GER)

Volker Oppmann was among the first German publishers to produce mobile Apps for iOS in summer 2008, shortly after the launch of the iTunes App Store. In 2009 he co-founded textunes and became a digital bookseller – and textunes the most popular e-reading app in Germany. In 2011 Germany’s leading book retailer, Thalia, acqui-hired textunes, leaving Volker and his team to run the digital division of Thalia. Working on the Tolino alliance, which launched in march 2013, Volker had his epiphany, realizing that booksellers in the digital age stopped being booksellers, but operators of gigantic cloud libraries, collecting both e-books and user data, and locking them away in walled gardens. Deeply believing that neither our cultural heritage nor our personal data should belong to single companies, he quit at Thalia and started LOG.OS – aiming to build an open eco/nomic/system for the written word, an »operating system« for books.
