Where Do We Go From Here?
After all the smoke clears, where will publishing be in, say, 20 years?

+The Digital Reader points to an article by +Matt Blind who asks some very poignant questions:

Who owns a kindle ebook? More importantly: what happens to a kindle ebook if Amazon stops hosting it?

Let’s talk about the future of publishing, not the panning-for-gold in the effluvia of a commerce-site-cum-social-network. Talk to me about how this all works in 2024, or 2034. Amazon is Fantastic, but can’t be the only player: tell me what’s next, and how to participate.

We need to take a step back from the current better-than wars (Amazon vs. Apple vs. tradpub, Kobo vs. iPad vs. Kindle vs. Nook) and think about what "publishing" means in the larger context of literary history. What are our children, our grandchildren reading? Are they reading at all, and if so, how, using what? Both sides of the wall (those who publish and those who create in order to be published) need to give some consideration beyond the moment and start to think, and to converse, about what the future of publishing means.

Matt asks:

If your imagination fails at KDP, then your imagination fails. If “big publishing” is what you’re against, then tell me what you are for. Howey, what’s next?

A possible new Farscape movie may be in the works

Supposedly, the storyline will follow the son of John and Aeryn.

It's worth noting this interview is almost 3 years old, so the section regarding the "upcoming" 2.1 version is a little...dated. :)

The response to the merger news was quick. The signatures increase as quickly as you can refresh the page.

This is not a merger that will benefit users. Please sign.
 
PETITION: Stop the Comcast/Time Warner Cable Merger

I almost never ask people to share one of my links generously, but I do ask you to make this new petition at Whitehouse.gov widely known and available. Things will not change in the U.S. cable television industry until consumer voices are heard. Thanks!

As an author, what is the difference between market norms and social norms?

Authors sometimes worry about how to market themselves and their works. Karen Lamb offers some thoughts about why marketing (for authors) is less about trying to be a "brand" and more about being just "you."

Limiting the number of documents in a scrivenings view

Normally a scrivenings view appears when you select a folder that contains sub-documents, which shows all the documents linearly in the editing window.

Author David Hewson uses a trick to show only the documents he needs in the scrivenings view. He prefers scrivenings to split-screens so he can refer to one document while writing another. This allows two documents to be next to each other in the scrivenings view even if they are not next to each other in the binder.

This works with more than two documents, also.

How I use Scrivener  - 
 
Scrivener Workflow for Blogging

The author uses Scrivener, along with Evernote, for blogging while formatting using Markdown. It's an extensive (read: long) article about their workflow, but some here might find it useful, particularly since the author uses the Windows version of Scrivener.

For Mac users, I would offer a modification for previewing Markdown written in Scrivener. Brett Terpstra's app Marked 2 (http://marked2app.com/) can display Markdown from within Scrivener projects--no need to export files.

Thanks. Still too tedious for my tastes, but an improvement.

A beautiful patch of native desert in the midst of the city. There are many nature trails and information markers to make the tour interesting. There is an instructional center (built of straw bale construction) and a pavilion available for picnics and group gatherings. Rabbits, lizards, roadrunners and other wildlife are often visible. It's far enough from most major streets to be a quiet, restful walk.

Good-tasting yogurt, though not the best I've eaten. It's self-serve. You can select from many different flavors, add toppings, and then pay by weighing your yogurt cup. Also have pastries and snacks. Outdoor seating is available, but no indoor seating.

Very nice park. Well maintained. Three lakes with plenty of room for fishing. Lots of picnic spots, almost all with barbecues. There is a fishing dock and a boat dock, plenty of restrooms and a large selection of ducks, geese, swans, cranes, squirrels and other wildlife to watch. Great place for walking. Several playgrounds for children.

A new facility built by Salt Lake County which opened in June, 2010. It's a complete recreational facility with two pools (children's and separate lane swimming with observation deck), a complete weight/machine room, two basketball/volleyball courts, running track, aerobics room and shower/locker facilities. The equipment is well maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. Membership fees are reasonable. Plenty of parking available. In addition, an older adjacent facility includes a senior center, day care and summer camps, and a computer lab. The grounds include several soccer fields, covered picnic buildings, a children's playground and access to the Jordan River Bikeway.
