Smashwords Increases Conversion Capacity by 300%

Mark Coker, head of the indie eBook distributor Smashwords, has just announced that Smashwords has updated conversion servers (popularly known as Meatgrinder). Gone is the 30 hours it used to take to upload and convert an eBook; you should now be able to upload nearly instantaneously.

Just to put the 30 hours into perspective, back when Meatgrinder was first launched (a couple years ago), conversion was running  around 5 minutes. Smashwords is doing a vastly increased amount of business now.
