Lightning Talk: Whither the Book?

A couple of months ago I did my first lightning talk at Online Northwest, on the future of publishing and how libraries and indie bookstores might not just survive, but thrive.  A lightning talk, if you’re not familiar with the genre, is a five-minute performance keyed to a set of 20 slides set to automatically advance every 15 seconds.  So, yeah.  Five minutes, 20 slides.  The future of publishing.  Hm.

It was a great experience, and it made me want to do another lightning talk sometime soon.  Thanks to Kate Gronemeyer for wrangling the talks this year–I just joined the Online Northwest conference planning committee, and I hope we’ll keep that torch burning.
