Tim O'Reilly on the Kindle and the Future of Publishing

InformationWeek's David Berlind had a sit-down last week with O'Reilly publisher Tim O'Reilly, and the result was a podcast of great importance. You can read the full transcript of it here. It's long, but so worth it. Any publishing leader who is less than informed about the Kindle and all its implications should just drop what they're doing and read or listen to this.

Now that your mind is blown wide open, venture into reading full coverage of the Tools of Change for Publishing event that took place in New York earlier this month. I really wanted to be there, but I didn't win the free tickets from Booksquare, and it was otherwise outside my budget range and above my pay grade. But reading all of this information will be the next best thing.
