This blog post collects a few of the things I’ve been doing elsewhere on other sites. I’m doing this more for my own records (it’s dumb to have to google for your own stuff), so feel free to ignore.
- Bookseller article: In depth: Iceland’s book market
- Futurebook: Facebook isn’t the content industry’s saviour
- Futurebook: The nine problems that hold back Icelandic ebooks
- Futurebook: Futurebook 2011 Impressions: New publisher business models
- Futurebook: A few future sources of ebook innovation
- All of my Futurebook pieces so far are listed on this page: Baldur Bjarnason’s blog posts
- I wrote a short piece on the Publish! event in Bristol for Creative Times: Publish! A day of innovation on the future of the book
- I also liveblogged the Futurebook conference, although I only did so using Simplenote: Futurebook keynote, Device matters: Trends in content consumption, Discoverability and pricing strategies, International, Content Strategies: new revenue streams, and The new publisher.
Also, yesterday, I was on the panel for a really nice event done by Creative Times and Bristol’s Pervasive Media Studio: The Beauty of Digital #2: New technologies, old aesthetics and where the two meet.
It was a lot of fun, filled with smart people. I did a short piece on how modern publishing isn’t anything like what publishing used to be throughout its industrialised history, right into the 1920s/1930s.
