How Print-On-Demand Is Transforming Self-Publishing

How Print-On-Demand Is Transforming Self-Publishing | Casual Authoring | Scoop.it

Marianela Camacho Alfaro's curator insight, July 29, 2013 1:04 PM

"Self-publishing in general is turning the traditional publishing industry on its head, but print-on-demand services, or POD, are making every writer’s dream of becoming a published author achievable, and it’s not just because of the obvious reasons: that the out-of-pocket cost of printing one book at a time is relatively less expensive than gambling on a 1,000-book run."

Defining simple tools and systems for digital publishing.

 

When I first saw The Magazine I smiled.

 

I smiled because it was so sensible, so rational, and so immediately obvious.

 

It felt like a platonic mobile-publishing container. No cruft, all substance. A shadow on the wall. The kind of app that's doing nothing fancy but everything right. The kind of app deemed anathema by Future Publishing Authorities because, quite frankly, it’s boring.

 

We feel like we've seen this before, but — have we?

 

In a conversation with renowned Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen about the newspaper industry, Joshua Benton remarked, “The perception of the incoming disruptors is that they are low quality, and therefore not really worth paying attention to.”1

 

Let’s pay attention.

Capture, Create and Collect: Curate Your Passions into Visual Collections with Kullect

Capture, Create and Collect: Curate Your Passions into Visual Collections with Kullect | Casual Authoring | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Kullect is a mobile publishing tool that allows you to capture, organize and share "collections" about things that interest and inspire you.

 

Kullect is also an interest-based social network which allows you to discover and connect with people who have your same interests or in partcular with those who are nearby.

 

From Xconomy: "Open up any of today’s top mobile media-sharing networks on your smartphone—like Instagram or Picplz for photos, Klip for videos, or Path for group sharing—and what you see is a random stream of disconnected items, stretching infinitely from today into last week, last month, and last year.

 

Each individual item in a stream may represent somebody’s special moment or act of curation, but there are no mechanisms within these platforms for ordering things or imposing a theme.

 

No pattern emerges. It’s just one damn thing after another.

 

Which is a little too much like real life, if you ask me. What’s missing is a sense of context.

 

I’d get a lot more out these apps if I understood why people share the things they do, or how they fit into a larger story.

 

That’s the whole point of Kullect.

 

As the name suggests, the app is all about building collections [which are like] extended, multimedia blog posts.

 

...

 

You can have as many collections as you want, and a collection can have any theme you want—I’ve seen Kullect users posting pictures from trips they’re taking, lists of their favorite bars or clubs, and varieties of roses in their gardens.

 

But whatever the theme, a collection amounts to a kind of story about what you’re doing or what you’re passionate about."
