The Futurist Panel
At our Publishing Business Conference & Expo in September, one very popular session was called "The Futurist Panel." Convened and organized by the visionary Brett Sandusky, it included a number of forward-thinking and innovative publishing folks, encouraged publishers to think more like software designers and less like, well, publishers, and debated the future of publishing as a craft and the core strengths publishers need to develop to compete in the publishing landscape of tomorrow.
We're pleased to announce that the futurists are back!
Next week, on Thursday November 14th at 3PM EST, we invite you to join us and hangout with our futurists for our first monthly virtual Futurist Panel.
This time, we'll discuss the question: "what is publishing, exactly?" Are all of the changes we see topical or profound? What is the act of publishing and is it different or the same from what it is and always has been? Can we decouple publishing from technology or are they one in the same? Let's tackle Publishing (capital P).
