The Future Was Yesterday!
Some of you, over the last week, may have noticed me proclaiming the coming of the future… The Futurist Panel, that is. Yesterday we convened the first of what will be a monthly gathering of forward-thinking publishing experts. In a wide-ranging 30-minute conversation, this insightful group began some interesting inquiries into how publishing has changed and will continue to morph, and how its future identity might shape up.
You can watch the archived version of the talk here. Just a taste of what you’ll hear and whom you’ll meet:
Brett Sandusky of bdigitl on publishing with a capital “P”
Nicole Valentine, writer and technology consultant, on why now is the time to start a small press
Corey Pressman of Exprima Media on why publishing’s future should be about experience, not objects
Kristen McLean of Bookigee on the digital transformation of books and reading
Frederick Chong Rutherford of Dow Jones on why we need to understand technology
The Futurists will continue this conversation next month, Friday December 13th at 2pm EST, so mark you calendars now to join them in our “Friday Futurists” Google Hangout. You can join them on the Book Business YouTube channel.
See you in the future!
