Collaborating with startups - Tools of Change for Publishing
"Our experience in this area has demonstrated that management in the cultural sector tends to consider these new companies potential competitors, for which reason they are ignored. Other management teams agree to meet them with a view to extracting information on their vision of the future in the sector, without any real intention of working with them. Other, more arrogant, publishers feel that their broad knowledge of the sector, coupled with certain internal resources, are quite sufficient to face any digital challenges."

Why Books Are The Ultimate New Business Card | Fast Company
"Books are no longer simply books, they are branding devices and credibility signals--not to mention the reason their authors command large speaking or consulting fees." (Probably always true, to an extent! But when does social media take over this phenomenon -- or has it already, for some?)

No New Normal – The Value Web | Eoin Purcell's Blog
"That as the impact of digital distribution begins to be felt along the trade publishing value chain, what will emerge is not a NEW VALUE CHAIN as much as a new VALUE WEB, an environment that sees, not one way to generate value in the industry but many ways of doing so. What’s more, this state will persist because no particular method will emerge as the single ‘way’ of trade publishing (if that term even retains relevance), at least not for some time to come."

Works Cited: The visible hand
Our tendency to efface the digital laborer, as well as the work of editors, designers, etc., is precisely what enables the widespread belief that e-books are necessarily cheaper to produce than paper books, as if the cost of the book lay in the printing.
