On our third Lift Studios Broadcast, Frederick Brummer and Haig Armen discuss publishing and how it relates to new media. The subject of publishing is an immense topic, and this conversation stems from our work with Publishing House D&M Publishers on the Bookriff website.
Even though Lift is not a publisher in the traditional sense of the word, we work with some great ones, and at the heart of both publishing and design there is great care put towards order and organizing large chunks of information into usable forms, coupled with a sense of artistic exploration. Particularly when the issue of digital distribution is of utmost concern for everyone in the publishing industry, we’ll most likely be continuing this theme in up coming broadcasts.
Here’s a link to an interesting article by Bruce Sterling that we had in mind while prepping for this LSB, Eighteen Challenges In Contemporary Literature. As well, you might want to check out the Institute for the Future of the Book, the BookNet Canada Blog and O’Reilly Radar.
