The Future of Print

WNYC’s latest On The Media (iTunesFeedSite) covers the crisis of traditional book publishing in a new media age. While Amazon rolls out the Kindle and more and more content comes out in pure digital form, we’re still publishing more books than ever before. One interesting note from the program is that publishers have discovered that offering more free content online (i.e. not just excerpts but whole chapters of new books) serves to increase sales even more. The show was great–worth a listen.
