A book sprint to explore the future of publishing
This experiment in 21st Century publishing-on-the-fly is led by Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination and sponsored by Intel Corporation. The concept: a series of “book sprints” that take place in real time at the Frankfurt Book Fair (October 2013), at Arizona State University in Phoenix, AZ (January 2014) and at Stanford University in California (May 2014). Using a new collaborative media technology, participants quickly write, assemble and publish multimedia anthologies exploring the future of publishing. Our teams of authors explore what is next for reading, writing, editing, book promotion and sales, as well as how digital technology can help the publishing industry confront the challenges of a changing landscape for books and reading.
