The O'Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing Conference for 2011 is now underway in New York City. Our own Kate Eltham is not only attending but also presenting at the lightening fast Ignite Program: Four Things a Catastrophic Flood Taught Me About Social Media ...(and One Thing It Taught me About Publishing), which will be broadcast live from the the TOC web site.
Some background on the conference:
Driven by the Internet, technology is fundamentally transforming publishing. Creation, development, production, distribution, and consumption have all been touched by the changes and challenges that have accompanied the greatest shifts in publishing since the printing press. Which technologies are important? Which provide exciting business opportunities? And what are the strategic questions you need to consider in adopting new models?
O'Reilly's Tools of Change for Publishing conference connects the people, companies, and organizations asking and answering the questions that will define the future of publishing. (TOC is a nod to the term publishing vets will recognize as referring to the Table of Contents of a book—a deliberate choice signaling our intent to set the agenda for the future of publishing.)
Kate will also be sending through notes from some the sessions she attends throughout, so keep watching the blog for updates.
