Chris Anderson of Wired Calls Richard Nash a “Genius”


Richard Nash, outspoken publishing provocateur and one of the brains behind Cursor, recently gave a keynote at Booknet Canada’s Calculated Risk: Adventures in Book Publishing. To describe risk in digital-age book publishing, Nash drew on his own experience with Soft Skull, on mathematics, and on a host of anecdotes.

Wired editor Chris Anderson sent a tweet last night that said this was the “Best speech on the future of books & publishing I’ve ever seen. @R_Nash is a genius. Every sentence quotable.”

“Everything we’re contending with right now is a function of Kinkos, and the aftermath of the Kinkos revolution,” said Nash early in his speech. If you want more, watch the whole keynote here.
