Amidst the flurry of the eBook Summit, neither GalleyCat nor eBookNewser reported on a very relevant guest on MediaBistro’s Morning Media Menu. Yesterday, GalleyCat’s Jason Boog talked to Ed Nawotka, editor of Publishing Perspectives, a journal affiliated with the Frankfurt Book Fair tasked with covering the publishing business from a global vantage point.
Nawotka and Boog talked about the issue of the week–eBooks. Nawotka weighed in on how global rights might be handled, and on whether international social network sights are likely to catch on in the US, among other things. Click here to listen to the show.
Nawotka is an ideal commentator on the changing book industry. He has been a long time correspondent for Publishers Weekly, and recently launched Publishing Perspectives. If you’re looking for a broad view of the book biz, he’s well worth following.
