Why BitTorrent Represents The Future Of Book Publishing - PSFK

Why BitTorrent Represents The Future Of Book Publishing - PSFK | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Artist and designer Marc Ecko teamed up with BitTorrent to promote his book Unlabel.
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

rtists, designers, and musicians have taken to BitTorrent to promote their projects. By creating downloadable BitTorrent Bundles, the artists can avoid limitations set by traditional publishing channels and have more artistic freedom to pack in more content for their fans and followers.

Just last September, Madonna released her project secretprojectrevolution as a BitTorrent Bundle. In similar fashion, designer and Complex mag founder Marc Eckō has teamed up with BitTorrent to promote his new book Unlabel.

But an email on Saturday morning from a Book People pundit  got me thinking. That pundit thought he was a truth teller.  I disagreed, and as I laid out the reasons in my head I realized that I had a wishlist of what I wanted that pundit to say if they truly were ready to speak truth to power. I have been writing about industry trends in bits and pieces in each news story, but it has been a long while since I last pulled everything together, took a step back, and told you what I see.
