News & Opinion: Good morning from TOC

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:49 PM – Filed under: Publishing Industry, The Company

Kate and I are at the kick-off of the O'Reilly Tools of Change Conference in NYC. People from all over the world are here for this year's conference; the MC just told us that attendance tripled over last year's inaugural conference in San Jose (Todd and Dylan were there).
Today there are two articles in major newspapers about the future of publishing:
New York Times: HarperCollins Will Post Free Books on the Web
Wall Street Journal: Publisher Tests Selling by the Chapter
We'll try to update more over the next few days. Unless we're busy playing with all of the new gadgets in digital publishing.
