Last week I attended the 7th annual Digital Book World in New York City. I tweeted about it from the audience. A lot. In case you missed the tweets, I’ll attach some here to give you a general idea about what happened at this important conference. You can find all the information from a variety of tweeple by searching on #DBW16. I highly recommend it. Bottom line: Digital innovation continues apace in publishing; publishing is highly suspect of Google, Facebook, Amazon and Apple; Data Guy is a real human being (and very intelligent) and his numbers are solid at AuthorEarnings.com; Kids still prefer print books over ebooks.
