Panel: Scaling the New Economies: In Search of Book Publishing's 2.0 Business Model
10:30 AM Room 411
Panel Topic: As consumers grow increasingly used to consuming an enormous amount of information from countless websites and blogs, for free, what's the business model for traditional publishers? And how do we compete in a world where people are willing spend their time writing for Wikipedia, a website or blog, for nothing? With these new economies becoming known as "sharing" and "gift" economies, what's the role of the working writer? And in a world where "free" is fast becoming the new buzz word, how do publishers make a buck? How do authors? And is there a difference between information and content? Does everything have to be free? Join us as we try to make dollars, and sense, out of these new and emerging economies and ideas.
Scott will discussing on this panel and probably around afterwards to meet you! If you are attending this conference, take the opportunity to get out there and meet the man!
