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.  


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.
