  • A BILLION REPORTERSThe media revolution, and how the MEDIA is taking part
  • “Are people who log on to their Facebook page really the best hope for us all?” MALCOLM GLADWELLFrom Small Change: Why the revolution will not be tweeted New Yorker, October 4, 2010
  • WHAT IF THEY TWEETED?Nazi resistance group The White Rose relied on fliers. Would Twitter have been more effective?
  • TAHRIR SQUARE ‘It caused it!’ and ‘It’s not that simple’Both sides oversimplify the influence of social media
  • AL JAZEERA• Live blog, Flickr, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and audio reports• Skype calls + Call Recorder + Audioboo + Scribble Live• Reached out to established bloggers• Verification by finding people ahead of time• Citizens given options for submissions• What works for Al Jazeera, works in Austin, Texas
  • U.S. MEDIA CURATING From the New York Times
  • NPR’S ANDYCARVINThe personal news wire
  • TOLLY MOSELEY• Tolly is a senior publicist and strategist for PR By the Book, a literary media relations firm based in Austin, Texas.  Tolly has worked with a variety of book publishers across genres, including Penguin, Tor/Forge, St. Martins Press, and more, and has placed her authors on dozens of major media outlets: CNN Primetime, CNN American Morning, NPR, in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Associated Press,Wired,TheHuffingtonPost.com, and more.• @TollyM ON TWITTER
  • Social Media and Books The International Bridge
  • Books Without BordersIn the days of old (i.e., the 20th Century) book publicists wanted todo one thing: Land stories that would push readers intobookstores.Now, we want to take them to Amazon, to NetGalley, to theauthor’s website, etc.Which is usually no problem -- until we get an international book.Enter Haven Books, a Hong Kong publisher who came to mycompany, PR By the Book.
  • Haven Books is a Hong Kong-based publisher of lifestyle, fiction, and young adult fiction titles. We loved them, but would American media? PROBLEM: Translating English-language, Hong Kong-cultural reading material for U.S. reading audiences.SOLUTION: Turn book bloggers into our “translators.” Social media users became our partners in contextualizing Asian content for non-Asian readers.
  • Book blogger tours: Rather than identifying local media markets,we’re now identifying “tribes” of reader interest.Social media users act as our tribe leaders. Examples: Food,travel, family/parenting.As book publicists, we’re now trying to add more internationalbloggers and social media users to our blog tours. It extends ourclients media (and hopefully sales) opportunities beyond the U.S.if we can harness English-language bloggers in differentcountries.
  • This book publicity model necessitates a new type of publisher.Today, publishers are tied to distributors, who are tied to bookstores. It’s an industry run on paper.Now that our industry is going digital, publishers are responding in kind: Enter The Domino Project. Highly vetted, high-quality books, available to readers all over the globe.
  • This presents us with questions of book economics, book access, and the international market: 1. If digital books are substantially cheaper, will traditional publishers survive? 2. Do we still need traditional publishers? 3. Who will be our global “tribe leaders” in the future? 4. How can we get more books, more quickly, to countries and readers who need them?
