Not only do publishers need to take digital seriously, they must make it the new default for publishing, preparing for a day in which physical book publishing is an adjunct activity that supports the digital publishing business. And this dramatic reversal will have happened faster in book publishing than in any other media business. Not just because publishers have had years to watch other media industries face the digital transition, but also be...

Behind the scenes
This is the official trade poster for the iTunes version of my new book of Poetry, Art, Music and Motion published by Chameleon Publishing.   It's only available for Mac devices currently but we're rushing to get the GooglePlayer and Windows versions with the Kindle version hot on their heels.I found that in realising this project that much of the technology for digital publishing supplied by Adobe and Apple itself was not quite up to promise.  W...

Poet/Author/Producer who currently specializes in Digital Storytelling and Speculative Realism
Introduction

Igor Goldkind was born April 20, 1960 in Lansing, Michigan and raised in San Diego, California.  He is an author, poet, and lecturer who currently specializes in Digital Storytelling and Information Architecture.   In 1983, Goldkind moved to Paris where he studied with Michel Foucault, the French Post-Structuralist scholar.  After receiving a graduate certificate from La Sorbonne, Goldkind moved to London where he worked first for Titan Books in the 1980s and then for IPC Magazines and Egmont Fleetway in the 1990s as a marketing consultant and PR spokesperson. Here, Goldkind helped develop and promoted the term "graphic novel" as a way to help sell the trade paperbacks then being published. Today, the Graphic Novel is a well-respected, internationally recognized genre. 

In  the 1990s, Goldkind became one of the UK's early innovators in digital media.  He set up a digital publishing company called Artemis Communications in 1993. one of the first digital agencies in the country, developing many first-ever publishing websites for Oxford University Press, Pearsons Publishing, Lisson Gallery, The Tate Modern, and Usborne Books.  In 1998 he established Signa Internet Strategies, considered to be the UK's first exclusively Search Engine Optimization company.  

Goldkind has lectured at Liverpool University, St. Martins School of Design, and the London College of Printing.  He is considered by his contemporaries to be an expert in the growing fields of Information Architecture, Usability Standards, and User Experience.  He continues to write and serve as the creative mind behind projects that link computational technologies with art, education, and storytelling.  http://comiccon.sdsu.edu/igor-goldkind/.

Igor Goldkind is currently completing a collection of SF short stories entitled THE VILLAGE OF LIGHT, which unfolds in and around a computer game, and his first novel, THE PLAGUE, which is set around the mass outbreak of a cognitive degenerative illness.  The latter is based upon the condition of dementia and Goldkind's has experiences in caring for his mother.  Goldkind's first work, IS SHE AVAILABLE?, incorporates poetry, art, music, and motion, and is due to be published by Chameleon Editions in 2014.
