Portland Tribune Interview

I was interviewed for the “In Character” column in the Portland Tribune. Interesting experience; the guy actually writes the article “live,” right there at the breakfast table. Enjoy.

My Appearance on the “Re-Doing Media” Podcast

I sure had fun yesterday on Cascadia.FM’s show, Re-Doing Media. Betsy Richter and Robert Wagner host the show, which is about the transformation of the media (whatever that term even means any more) in the digital age (whatever that means).
I was there to talk about the future of books and publishing, and it was a good conversation. We tackled such subjects as Is the physical book a goner, how ever will Borders survive, and are used books bad for your health. You can listen to or download the show at the Re-Doing Media site.
A few links from stuff that I can remember mentioning:
NWABP.org is the Northwest Association of Book Publishers, to which I belong.
Vook.com does enhanced e-Books.
StumptownScribes.com is my mobile book booth.
