This coming Thursday should be an interesting day, indeed. I'm headed for Google's one-day conference, to be held at the New York Public Library, called Un-Bound: Advanced Book Publishing in a Digital World. Or:
... a day examining how the book business has changed and how it will continue to evolve. Hear from thought leaders and industry veterans who are taking advantage of our increasingly digital world—from blogs and social networks to print-on-demand and online access.
Some of those thought leaders include Corey Doctorow (an expert in the field), Freakonomics author Stephen Dubner, Seth Godin, and Tim O'Reilly. A smart gathering, speakers and observers, to be sure.
