Cloud-publishing; or, Why "Self-publishing" Is Meaningless

This in from:

http://www.publetariat.com/cloud-pub...ng-meaningless

and cross-posted here:

Fair warning: article is written by the founder of Bookoven.com

What's Wrong with the Status Quo?

Others of course, will prefer the current model, and that is wonderful and excellent and good. I love publishers, and books, and book stores, and libraries, and they have brought me great joy over the years.

But the web offers new, parallel ways to make books, not necessarily better, but more flexible, more easily global, more connected.

That's the larger movement afoot. And if all goes well, Book Oven will be a big part of this movement.

No. I don't have as much to add to this conversation as you do.

The article writer hasn't seem to have completely gone off the deep end though:

Quote:
We'll have corporate publishers making good books, and independents making more good books. And everyone will make lots of bad books too.
I think his analysis is a bit off--but it's neither completely wrong nor downright lunatic. I could see the future turn out similarly to his vision.
