If you’re ever in need of inspiration or feeling like you want to learn something new, there’s only one place to turn to: TED.
We take a look at the best digital publishing talks TED has to offer, from the vintage to the current. These videos are must-watch.
A free digital library
Okay so 2007 isn’t exactly vintage, but in terms of technology it may as well be. When Brewster Kahle gave this talk, the original iPhone had only been around for 6 months and Twitter was still a baby chick, having been created just over a year before. So when Kahle spoke about creating a pure digital library, you can imagine how much of a feat this would have been.
A next-generation digital book
Mike Matas helped create the worlds first feature-length digital book. Written by Al Gore, Our Choice is a follow up to An Inconvenient truth. The level of interactivity is great, but I’ll leave you to decide what you think of the pinch-and-zoom navigation.
Crowdsourcing the news
With smartphones in everyone’s back pocket, the world of journalism and publishing news is changing. Paul Lewis discusses these changes and how the public are becoming make-shift reporters in their own right.
