Filter-feeding • 1 February 2010 • The SnowBlog
I can't remember if I've recommended Clay Shirky's book about publishing (it's got a slight emphasis on newspapers rather than books, perhaps) and the interwebs, but if I haven't, I should have done. (If only there was a way I could check, but who wants to go through all the longhand drafts of their blog posts looking for familiar phrases?) It's called Here Comes Everyone and it's good for people trying to think about the commerical future of publishing. (Surprisingly, that doesn't describe by any means the majority of publishers, but maybe there are a few interested readers out there.) Well, here* is a little flavour of his thinking in a very easy-to-watch talk about privacy and information overload. Link.
*Yet again, prompted by BoingBoing linking to it first.
