Video version of my talk here thx to au.blurb.com: http://vimeo.com/7052774

Spiel: "The Inter-tubes have ignited a self-publishing revolution due to the decrease in cost of production and the exponential scale of distribution. Online self-publishing gives authors a global footprint without the traditional marketing and distribution costs. No more middle-man.

In this brief presentation using the Ignite format of 5 minutes per presentation, 20 slides and 15 sec per slide, technology evangelist, Tim Parsons, presents a timely perspective on the history of publishing and the self-publishing revolution tipping point, and talks about the book he made."

Note: I'm working with the lovely folk at Blurb.com who not only introduced me to the brave new world of self-publishing but did a cracking job on printing and binding my book, especially the full-bleed photos and the imagewrap binding. Here's another video of me unwrapping it upon arrival ! http://vimeo.com/6455062
