Save the Date: Tools of Change for Publishing Conference 2/13-15

Tools of Change for Publishing Conference in NYC
Save the Date! TOC 2012 will happen February 13-15, 2012 at the Marriott Marquis Times Square. The call for participation will open this summer.

ABOUT the Tools of Change Conference:

Driven by the Internet, technology is fundamentally transforming publishing. Creation, development, production, distribution, and consumption have all been touched by the changes and challenges that have accompanied the greatest shifts in publishing since the printing press. Which technologies are important? Which provide exciting business opportunities? And what are the strategic questions you need to consider in adopting new models?

O'Reilly's Tools of Change for Publishing conference connects the people, companies, and organizations asking and answering the questions that will define the future of publishing. (TOC is a nod to the term publishing vets will recognize as referring to the Table of Contents of a book—a deliberate choice signaling our intent to set the agenda for the future of publishing.)
