New York, Feb. 10: Talking About Book Ecosystems

Toc ConferenceI’ll be in New York on Feb. 10 to speak at the O’Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing Conference. My topic is considering ways to expand and extend the ecosystem around books:

We know now that many books, especially timely non-fiction, can become major elements of intellectual ecosystems—including blogs, websites, magazine excerpts, speaking gigs, consulting and more. In the future those various activities could become part of a business ecosystem as well, where all work to the benefit of each other in more direct financial ways. This suggests collaboration on the part of everyone in the chain – author/speaker, publisher, book agent, speaking agency, et al – and sharing the wealth from the hopefully greater total value that’s likely to be created.
