A selection of documents, articles, papers, videos and other content for those interested in the transformation that is required when going 100% digital in an organization. I also try to highlight the impacts, both positives and negatives of that transformation. Like it? Please click "Recommend"
I found this book reference on GitBook. It is the textbook for the class at UC Berkeley and provides not only great content for anyone interested in Data Science (visualization, prediction, etc.) but also for anyone interested in self publication.
GitBook is similar to GitHub, the open source software code repository that pretty much everyone in the industry is using. It provides not only the technology to create and publish a book online or as an ebook but also the social network and collaboration features you'd expect in today's world. Book content can be consolidated from multiple authors, versioned and commented by a network of colleagues or clients.
"Heck, Amazon is selling these books at $9.99, and who knows maybe they are right and we will fail even at $12.99."
Farid Mheir's insight:
Take the 5 minutes to read the email exchange between Harper Collins and Apple on prices of eBooks. It sheds a light on the transformation that digital has on businesses for things as simple as books. A new technology - eBooks - transforms the distribution but also removes a lot of the costs - materials, distribution, remaindering, cost of capital, bad debt, etc. - which forces businesses into different pricing structures.
Underlying the discussion is the disrupting impact that Amazon has - buys books at 13$, sells online for 10$, author getting 3.30$ - creating a market with their ecosystems of kindle devices and amazon.com platform. Mindblowing.
Moreover, I appreciate the conciseness of the exchange: to the point, this is what it is.
