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.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
