The team in Frankfurt tackled our first big question on Wednesday morning: how will people read in the future? Their responses include ruminations on the phenomenology of distraction, the perfect piece of furniture, the politics of privacy and how readers are becoming more like writers:
- Jane Friedman, “The Blurring Line Between Reader and Writer”
- Dan Gillmor, “Readers and Anonymity”
- Lee Konstantinou, “Reading and Our Addiction to Distraction”
- Charlie Stross, “Reading Machines”
Be sure to join us tomorrow when we consider the production of books, the interplay between writing and editing and the evolving concept of the book. Also, help us continue to explore the future of publishing by sharing your vision!
