On February 25th, Triple Canopy (http://canopycanopycanopy.com) hosted Productive Behaviors, a conversation about new directions in digital publishing with Astrom / Zimmer (http://astromzimmer.com).
We spent the month of February in Brooklyn, working with Triple Canopy as they develop a new publishing platform to launch in September. In the podcast we present our work and discuss issues pertaining to the shift from print to digital publishing with Triple Canopy editors. Together we ask how publishing platforms and applications might not only illuminate but also amplify the fundamental relationships between people, places, objects, and social processes that constitute Triple Canopy's expanded field of publication. Rather than shoveling all kinds of information onto the Web, how might we design interfaces, and facilitate reading experiences, that make productive use of the ineluctable differences between digital information and tangible things in the world? Moving beyond the naive fantasy of online knowledge production, how might we envision the circulation of information between those realms so as to be meaningful, even socially beneficial?
