O’Reilly Media will present a one-day conference, Tools of Change for Publishing, the day before the Frankfurt Book Fair in opens this October in conjunction with Mike Shatzkin of Idea Logical (and whose father wrote the excellent and indispensable In Cold Type) and the Book Industry Study Group. Interesting to see that Michael Tamblyn, who recently joined Shortcovers (Shortcovers making moves, hiring for clout), is on the keynote list.
Frankfurt Book Fair Press Officer Thomas Minkus said in a press release: “Addressing the subject of digitisation and the new business models arising from it are key to the future success of our industry. Digitisation and the building of new business relationships are what draw people to Frankfurt.”
Looks like a good way to spend October 13th in Frankfurt.
