It took only 3 hours for Seth to reach the kickstarter goal. Let the publishing revolution begin.

Fragmentary: Writing in a Digital Age

Fragmentary: Writing in a Digital Age | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

"Digital media, in all its forms, is fragmentary."

writes this blogger. 

 

Kinda like code, no doubt. And whats more it is hyperlinked and connects users. Wow what ar revelation! I think it was McLuhan who said "we are post literate" We don't even ready any more, we scan documents, text and link to more...

Thank you for sharing this Michael.

I would add that Seth Godin's best selling books seem to be geared at fragmented thinking patterns. Tom Peter's Big Things best selling blog/book is other evidence that this fragmented reading is perpetual in many forms of reading on the net and text.

Why Apple Won by Betting Against the Web

Why Apple Won by Betting Against the Web | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Roger McNamee says Apple became successful by betting against the Internet.

 

The result of that vote is a move away from the desktop experience of free, undifferentiated content. Mobile users don’t navigate the Internet with Google searches. They use apps, which deliver a better experience. And they spend much more time within those apps than on any web story.

TED Becomes a Publishing Platform

TED Becomes a Publishing Platform | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

"TED has become a publisher (curating content and disseminating it) and a publishing platform (a format designed to attract and disseminate more content). The platform is akin to other new forms of publishing such as blogs or tweets. A TED talk is something that can be described and that gives it informational power.

TED could have done the traditional publishing thing — put up walls and sold exclusivity. Instead, it has chosen to embrace the notion that information has the most value when it is shared widely. Perhaps traditional publishers of other forms of media should take note"

 

 TED is now one of the most powerful and visible brand in the world. Not only because they produce qualitative content, but curate, select and spread ideas they believe in widely.

 

Pretty inspiring. And convincing.

So, who wants to be a publisher ?

I can see value in this.  I can also see that the next step would be automated invitations to selected thought leaders to request their input and request proposals for chapters.  In  theory, this could all be automated.
