DavidDurand: @toc My fear is that the people at #toc include most of the tools of change for publishing. If so, that's bad.

DavidDurand: #toc Bob Stein says social aspect of online content is what we all missed back when. Me: This is one of the few Ted Nelson missed too.

DavidDurand: #toc @pdlug I think we don't have names for all the genres of book as information. There will be many successors/complements, all different

DavidDurand: @mkirschenbaum #toc exactly, but it's more than one kind of construction, a reality hidden by the popular artifact.

DavidDurand: @artmaker #toc is the Tools of Change for Publishing Conference held by O'Reilly media. http://toccon.com

DavidDurand: @annmichael @mkirschenbaum yes, but if we have one shared margin for "the book" things get perhaps obtrusively social in a new way #toc

Artmaker: RT @DavidDurand: @artmaker #toc is the Tools of Change for Publishing Conference held by O'Reilly media. http://toccon.com <--------answer

DavidDurand: #toc is there a treatment for "ruptured contexts?"

DavidDurand: @cherylpickett Do you really think authors are more scared than publishers. Not from what I see... #toc

DavidDurand: Dctorow: "The copyright industries have not covered themselves in glory" #toc

cherylpickett: @DavidDurand #TOC Depends on who you talk too, yes many stuck in belief traditional only way, anything else is wrong & won't sell

DavidDurand: vendors push DRM, but claim that publishers demand it. Publishing should preserve their image of not being jerks. #toc

DavidDurand: #toc you can be a platform and charge fair rent without chaining your customers and their customers to the storefront.

DavidDurand: #toc Pirated spore was better, because the DRM broke a significant percentage of all installations. What a reverse incentive

DavidDurand: #toc Orwant: stats show that frontlist/backlist is not a distinction online. 6-7 pages average reading on book search hits.

DavidDurand: #toc I always download a few pages just figuring out where I am, and so what's the random download percentage there?

DavidDurand: #toc orwant: 99% of books viewed at least once. 89% have at least one buy click.

DavidDurand: @cherylpickett I agree. I guess I'm amazed at the slowness of reaction in an environment of rapid change #toc

DavidDurand: orwant:wants to go form scan to "original intent" XML. Glad they are trying, and I bet they don't do well on tech content for a decade #toc

DavidDurand: @chelseagreen @robotech_master We use PDF at #tizra because that's where the data is. As there's more data elsewhere, we'll move there. #toc

DavidDurand: Enjoying @mkirschenbaum s #toc talk, but wondering what the publishing types are making of it. Old ACH hacks like me can't really tell.

chelseagreen: @DavidDurand @robotech_master good point. Publishers have no addl conversion cost when creating PDFs. We all already use it. #toc

chelseagreen: @robotech_master @daviddurand @oreilly is the only one I know of. I'd bet only 2% of the pubs here could tell you how to create an epub #toc

chelseagreen: @robotech_master @daviddurand awesome. I hope an epub ecosystem follows. #toc

DavidDurand: @mikecane I think this fits with Cory's opener. When you use publish with aggressive DRMyou shackle yourself more than your customer. #toc

thr61: @davegray @daviddurand -- fascinating watching your parallel tweets from #toc. The trick will be to see if you can actually meet.

DavidDurand: Instant gratification rules. Immediate access to content. #toc

DavidDurand: RT @angelajames: #toc used 3 y/o nephew as example of someone who knows nothing but a world of access to immediate access to all content

DavidDurand: @davegray #toc I often bring that up because people get excited about printing, and forget the previous 3 millennia of scrolls/clay/stone

DavidDurand: @eykd #toc that's right. They don't know now, and too few are investigating. even fewer do anything with what they learn.

DavidDurand: @doctorow #toc I got into this because of Ted Nelson, but I've become skeptical that readers will use this. Maybe the directors cut...

DavidDurand: #toc 8% seems low based on some other publishers I've seen (like OECD). Maybe boring reference is different from things you read whole.

DavidDurand: @joebachana But I don't bet against the great powers idly any more. You succeed from the core of good, even if there's evil too #toc

DavidDurand: Tag cloud on rights. I keep wondering why publishers are letting Google take the risk on rights when the reward is the industry #toc

mr_random: RT @mikecane RT: @DavidDurand: @KatMeyer : I don't think Amazon cares about readers. #toc

DavidDurand: Great point from audience: there's no warehouse online, so everything can sell over time.#toc

DavidDurand: @KatMeyer: ideal price point for reading devices $99. #toc

DavidDurand: RT @worleygirl: "The #1 topic at the #TOC Tag Cloud session = FEAR, FEAR, FEAR." -- and a real shame we're not beyond it action cures fear

DavidDurand: @CurseYouKhan It just amazes me to see something so backwards. There are lawyers, too, which is the real problem. #toc
