  • 1. the future of publishing
  • 2. NOBODY CAN PREDICT THE FUTURE
  • 3. THE END
  • 4. NOT REALLY…
  • 5. BUT PREDICTING THE FUTURE IS TRICKY…
  • 6. “With over 50 foreign cars already on sale here, the Japanese auto industry isn’t likely to carve out a big slice of the U.S. market.” - Business Week, 1958
  • 7. “This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” - Western Union, internal memo, 1876
  • 8. “Theoretically, television may be feasible, but I consider it an impossibility – a development which we should waste little time dreaming about.” - Lee de Forest, inventor of the cathode ray tube, 1926
  • 9. there are 710,000 results to choose from
  • 10. …here’s 10
  • 11. 1. people will pay for what they value - but not for things they are forced to pay for
  • 12. 2. winning publishers will be flexible and agile, embracing emerging platforms
  • 13. …and methodology of distribution will be more vital than presentation of destination
  • 14. 3. open, de-centralised publishers will win
  • 15. …closed, silo’d publishers will lose
  • 16. 4. the definition of 'print' will change
  • 17. …just as the process of watching TV, listening to radio and reading news is changing has changed
  • 18. 5. citizen journalism will fundamentally affect the publishing industry
  • 19. 6. harnessing the wisdom of the crowds will be proven as a competitive advantage
  • 20. 7. multiple business models will exist, with no single ‘solution’ winning
  • 21. …crossing over industry types to aggregate revenue streams
  • 22. 8. consumption will be markedly different between alternative machines and screens
  • 23. …people won't be forced into unsuitable experiences 
  • 24. 9. differentiation of publisher offering will be from lateral innovation rather than solely improving content
  • 25. 10. the ease of discovering, sharing and purchasing will determine success as much as the content itself
