QOTD: Shirky on PublishingPosted: April 11, 2012
I love this sentiment, I think it’s right to the point of how things have changed:
Publishing is not evolving. Publishing is going away. Because the word “publishing” means a cadre of professionals who are taking on the incredible difficulty and complexity and expense of making something public. That’s not a job anymore. That’s a button. There’s a button that says “publish,” and when you press it, it’s done.
