Project Abstract

The fundamental of publishing is to produce content—information, media, the arts—desired by a consumer. However, disruption to the industry from digital technologies has many questioning the “correct” method used to disseminate such content, and much disruption is expected in publishing. The publishing industry started with a massive techno-social disruption in the form of the printing press, so there is a degree of irony present as it now tries to adapt to the digital era.
