SmartBitches: #toc Cory Doctorow is on stage. Right off the bat: defenders of copyright have not covered themselves with glory. MROW!

SmartBitches: #toc DRM technology: Jane and Cory need to have dinner. Now. "It is a futile errand in general."

SmartBitches: #toc Who makes more: the company who blows money on DRM, or the company who insures that everyone who wants to give them money can do so.

SmartBitches: #toc Failure of Overdrive: If you buy books, prepare to lose them because of baroque corporate wrangling. Steal them and keep forever.

SmartBitches: #toc publishing grabbing technology (DRM) that other industries are dropping because it is not useful or effective.

SmartBitches: #toc call to action: no one should license any product without allowing owner to determine whether it has DRM. Vendor should NOT control DRM

SmartBitches: Sara Lloyd keynote: Pblishers are rubbish at working together, and they need to start, now. #toc

SmartBitches: #toc Our panel was amazing. And @jane_l was truly missed. We talked about her a lot, but her presence would have made it stellar.

SmartBitches: St. Malle of eBooks, aka Malle Vallik, the Oracle was eagerly listened to because she could speak eloquently about publication #toc

SmartBitches: Angela James had all the details about formats and how selling the BOOK itself and not the format is more important than DRM. #toc

SmartBitches: And Kassia Kroczer's slideshow featuring reader comments meant all the folks who answered the survey were part of the session. Smart #toc

SmartBitches: #toc as I mentally percolate on the ToC, I still think that pub and tech and author were repped but not as much the reader - a notable miss
