Michael Tamblyn’s six good ideas for the future of publishing

BookNet Canada is getting around to posting videos from last week’s technology forum, and the first one to go up is BookNet CEO Michael Tamblyn’s talk entitled 6 Projects That Could Change Publishing for the Better. Judging from audience reaction, Tamblyn’s lively and wide-ranging presentation was one of the most popular of the day, covering everything from how to make e-readers sexy to improving online browsing experiences for book buyers to developing an XML workflow that doesn’t suck. The talk also included a pitch for BiblioShare.org, an online ONIX repository and data aggregator.

BookNet will continue to post videos each week. You can view slides from the conference here.
