Well-meaning, urbane publishing folk celebrate the evolution of the 'ebook' and the adjacent issues that vex them as they endeavour to protect their business models whilst simultaneously, and not unwittingly, chronicling the death of their industry in its current form.
[AS: I very much enjoyed this, but took particular delight in the the tweeted comment of a live listener who remarked 'talk about the concept of DRM to anyone under 20 and they'll laugh their arse off' (17:20).
The rest is window dressing, really, but stylishly presented nevertheless.
I've every hope that this series won't get too wistful about the passing of yesterday, but choose instead to celebrate the possibilities today is offering rather more vigorously. It's the last party for those publishers who haven't evolved quickly enough and/or can't shake off the burden of vestigial business models, so they may as well enjoy themselves. By dint of their having taken part, everyone involved in this enterprise is manifesting the fact that they're savvy enough to make the cut when the axe swings. Good luck to them.]
