Editor's Note: Google Exec to Keynote Publishing Business Virtual Event
Mark Nelson, Strategic Partner Manager at Google, will be interviewed during a special keynote event, LIVE during the Publishing Business VIRTUAL Conference & Expo (produced by Book Business and Publishing Executive magazines), Sept. 16 at 10:15 a.m.-11:15 a.m. ET.
The interview will focus on "Google Editions," Google's forthcoming new service that will allow users to buy digital copies of books they discover through Google's book search, and enable book retailers to sell Google Editions through their own sites and share in the revenue from e-book sales. The foundation and distinction of Google Editions versus other online e-bookstores is its "cloud-based" platform, which provides consumers who purchase books with an "electronic bookshelf," so they can access their books anytime, anywhere, from a variety of electronic devices, via the Internet.
Nelson also will share his perspectives on the future of the book industry, among other important issues surrounding a shifting industry in which Google has been a dominant player.
The 2010 Publishing Business Virtual Conference & Expo, called "Digital Content Day @ Your Desk," is a free event featuring a full day of sessions presented by industry-leading speakers focusing on maximizing digital content.

In addition to the educational sessions and discussions, must-see keynote events and exhibition and resource area, you can also network with fellow attendees and ask questions of many of the speakers.
