Jim Griffin, m.d. of OneHouse, was the first keynote, setting out the problems faced by publishers transitioning to digital. "We live in a time when it is voluntary to pay," he said. "I don't pretend it is legally right to not pay, or morally right, but in fact it is a choice people make, they choose whether they are going to pay or not, and increasingly that choice is becoming more viable."

How We Will Read: Clay Shirky

How We Will Read: Clay Shirky | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it

"The question isn’t what happens to publishing — the entire category has been evacuated. The question is, what are the parent professions needed around writing? Publishing isn’t one of them. Editing, we need, desperately. Fact-checking, we need. For some kinds of long-form texts, we need designers. Will we have a movie-studio kind of setup, where you have one class of cinematographers over here and another class of art directors over there, and you hire them and put them together for different projects, or is all of that stuff going to be bundled under one roof?"

El gap de la inteligencia de clientes en el comercio digital del libro: un grave problema del editor

El gap de la inteligencia de clientes en el comercio digital del libro: un grave problema del editor | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it

"Creo haber leído hace mucho que Einstein, al recibir el premio Nobel de Física 1921 dijo: «prefiero ser un optimista y estar equivocado, que ser un pesimista y estar en lo cierto». Me viene al pelo el comentario porque parto de dos tesis:la primera, el sector todavía tiene arreglo si entra en un proceso racional de transición digital y reconfigura sus modelos del papel;la segunda, si no se conoce al cliente no se conoce el negocio."

"Estaba en una tienda de esas en las que se venden productos Apple. Como casi todos saben, el mayor placer de usar un producto Apple es comprar luego otras cosas que los hacen más útiles o deseables: fundas, adaptadores, cables, teclados externos, limpiadores de pantalla, kits de formación y un sinfín de complementos. Pues bien, cuando curioseaba entre ellos, ¿qué ven mis ojos? Libros. Sí, libros, de papel."

How We Will Read: Clive Thompson | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it

"I am absolutely convinced that being able to see what other people have said about a book and to talk about it and respond to it is going to be a freakishly huge boon for books. If you think about it, so much of how people who love books have dealt with their love is by trying to put together social environments where people can talk about books, like book clubs. Universities are essentially institutions designed to let people talk about books. We do this over and over and over again."
