Just a few days until our Future of the Book conference kicks off at the Hyatt Auckland, 24-25 June. We’ll have a Twitter-er or two on site and you’ll be welcome to chip in remotely. Hashtag is #nzdpf so follow along.
I’ve been organising this conference in my role as Director of the Digital Publishing Forum. It’s our big event for this year and it’s been a busy few weeks as regular followers of this blog will have noticed from the drought in postings. We’re expecting 150 people over the course of the two days and we’ve got some pretty interesting stuff lined up. Take a look at the finalised programme at digitalpublishing.org.nz/future. And no, it’s not too late to register, we never turn paying customers away.
Some of you might already have heard one of our keynotes, Sherman Young, on the Kim Hill show last Saturday on Radio NZ. Here’s a link to the MP3 or to the feed for the Kim Hill show (Saturday 13 June 9:10am). I thought this was a great interview, credit to both the interviewer and interviewee.
We’ll be posting most of the prezzos on the site following the conference so you can check back later to find out more.
