From Clare Alexander's piece in the Bookseller
"So here is what I would like to leave back in 2007: all those endless disputes about an imagined future, digital or otherwise. Instead, I hope that our industry, our institutions and our government learn to value the existing talent, energy and diversity of the British publishing scene."
Wow. What an odd thing to say. God forbid that we should think about the future. What about the now, people? Knee jerk short-termism is, after all, what British companies run on, as I recall from when I worked for 'em.
