Strategies for a discontinuous future.

Publishing 2.0 is Dot Com 2.0

More about Google's Harvard/Oxford/etc library digitization plans:

"...The project eventually will allow any Internet user anywhere in the world to search inside millions of volumes, seeing the pages exactly as they appeared in the originals, complete with illustrations, charts and photos.

"When you see the old typefaces (from books) copyrighted in the 1800s, juxtaposed with Google and the search box, it's an almost indescribable feeling to see these two worlds colliding," she said. "This is one of the great milestones in the shift of our culture from paper-based to electronic," said Andrew Herkovic, a Stanford librarian working with Google on the project. "There is in effect a social recognition that we need to transfer the information from paper-based as in the past into the delivery medium of the future."

Gives a nice sense of what the cards are going to look like for the publishing industry in 3-5 years time.
