The Evolving Book
January 08, 2010
Adrian Zackheim, publisher at Portfolio, an imprint of Penguin, posted an interesting piece today in response to another post by NY Times writer Jonathan Galassi about eBooks' role within publishing. Galassi sets up the idea, and Zackheim focuses on an interesting perspective - the role of publisher as a filter, a curator, and a packager of ideas; ideas which then get distributed to a large amount of eyes and minds. eBooks are a piece within that process, just as paperbacks, online essays, videos, etc.
