The Future Of Books And Publishing

Posted by

Episode #279 of Six Pixels of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.

I wish more people would read (more) books. In a world of Blog, Podcasts, Twitter, magazines and more, I still get the most value out of reading and thinking about a good book over anything else. If you’ve been playing along at home, you’ll know that a frequent guest on the show (and one of the Media Hacks co-host) is Hugh McGuire. Along with starting one of the most interesting open source projects, LibriVox (for audio books based on books in the public domain), Hugh also works on book and publishing start-ups. He’s currently got iambik and PressBooks rolling, but hasn’t stopped there. Just recently, he launched a new book (which he co-edited with Brian O’Leary) for O’Reilly called, Book: A Futurist’s Manifesto. The book publishing industry is going through dramatic change and digitization. With that comes some fascinating lessons for marketers and marketing. Enjoy the conversation…

  1. Are you a blog owner that issues invitation codes to Press This as seen on their landing page?
    Thank you again for another value packed podcast episode. I’ve been enjoying HM since seeing his anti-business as usual cards.

  2. Great episode, Mitch and Hugh. I feel like I’m sitting beside you at the breakfast table, even though I’m still hungry at the end.
    I’m fascinated by the changes to publishing even though I’m not involved in the industry. I keep trying to project onto other areas with even more physical attributes. “Context not Containers” is a good mantra for many physical industries; even the container industry, I’ll bet. ๐Ÿ™‚
