Web Directions Year round learning for web and digital professionals

Craig Mod – How digital affects books and publishing

Web Directions South 2010, Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, October 14 10.45am.

Presentation slides

Session description

We need to decouple the idea of ‘book’ from the mental image we carry around of ‘book.’ The innovation and benefit that digital brings to books and publishing lies less in how digital affects final artifacts, and more in how digital affects the systems leading up to and extending beyond those artifacts.
