For those who don't know me, I'm one of the people helping set the day up. Here's my linkedin CV thing, my blog about publishing and technology, my (dirty) publisher, my book-reading web app, my open-source literary festival, a literary magazine I designed (badly) and occasionally help edit, and stuff.


I've got a couple of ideas about talks to give on the day. Which of these sound interesting to you folks?


  • How to start a publishing company in your bedroom - How and why I started Bookkake, concerning new publishing technologies, new audiences, ebooks and pricing, print on demand, the web and THE FUTURE.
  • Last.fm for books, or something - The how and the why of bkkeepr, reading as a social activity, social activities in general (games, achievements, data shadows), publishers' place on the web, and APIs.
  • The current landscape in publishing - how we've got to where we are, which isn't really anywhere; what (some) publishers are doing about ebooks, the web and POD, why (some) agents are crapping themselves, why readers should be a bit frightened (but not much), why authors definitely should, what we might do about this.
