RT @RonHogan : #toc @michaelhyatt "publishers need to stop talking about it and start doing it" one of the top 3 themes here
If you're not following @angelajames on Twitter and are in publishing, click follow. She's tweeting #toc.
Kindle audio? @doctorow versus AG at #toc:
RT @thewritermama Don't just blog, do something more sophisticated with all of your amazing content. #TOC
Note to self. The down escalator leads to the accountants conference. #toc.
#TOC - I think some of the issues here are that there needs to be 10 minutes between sessions so speakers can set up.
@mikecane I'm sure lots of ppl from sony are here, in this room, some dude who had a 700. didn't give his name. #toc
#toc "Who owns an un-listened-to music CD?" (a few hands) "Who owns an unread book?"(many many hands) Huh.
Ingram dude doesn't see price as a dominant issue at PoS. I know some rabid ebook fiends who would disagree. #toc
finding all the #toc tweets fascinating.
#TOC - Random House offers some free downloads to encourage discovery and sampling.
I am so enthralled by all the #toc tweets. Must stop reading and do my own work. LOL
This afternoon at TOC I'm tweeting with a plan: Each Tweet should make sense to someone who's not at the conference or in the panel. #TOC
RT @doctorow : Antidote to fear of piracy is information #toc
#TOC - Mac: a "more nuanced model" - there's a "gray" market that increases discovery.
#TOC - P2P "threats" are actually quite lame - pirated books are not well-produced, are late, etc.
#TOC focus on reader to reader relationships, no need to mediate them either
RT @doctorow : Random House study: Free downloads correlate with slight increase in sales, though may not be causal #toc
RT @doctorow : Random House: Goal with free downloads is to find the right person for the right book (!), downloaders share them #toc
#TOC build social objects/activity centered software design
If you're worried about piracy, make sure you verify where it's actually happening, not where the media tells you it's happening. #toc
#toc Guy from NATURE: I never refer to the people who read our sites as "users". They're "readers." Hear hear.
A book with more seeds on pirate networks had greater sales. #toc
Hope you'll have a look at the new @tizra features announced at #toc
#TOC APIs allow for integration, extend and enrich your content
the reason for my personal twitter challenge this afternoon (all tweets make sense individually) is this post: #TOC
"As long as people were talking about it, it didn't really matter where the conversation was ocurring." #toc
sarah weinmann (@sarahw ) says on her blog, where are all the women at #TOC?
Love the #toc tweets, but raises eyebrows at future talk-to-action ratio. (via @MoriahJovan )
really loving the tweets from @doctorow , who's at Tools of Change O'Reilly conf. Yes, THAT O'Reilly. #toc
Potential Problems in Community: those delightful heretics from down the lane. #toc
@mikecane #toc Problem is unwillingness to act quickly; can be done, if they were interested, but they're not.
RT @doctorow : O'Reilly study: Divert anti-piracy energy into developing good digital platforms #toc
RT @chadrem : Random notes from Gavin Bell's session The Long Tail Needs Community #toc (GREAT stuff in this one)
Is it lunch break at #TOC?
Henk van drunen: the cost is not in the content, it's in the adaptation of the content to the new media #toc
I can't believe people complaining of @doctorow 's tweet volume. Why do you bother to Follow if you want him to STFU? #TOC
Using social media to build book audiences, from an afternoon panel at Tools of Change publishing conf #TOC:
Liked "RT @chadrem : Random notes from Gavin Bell's session The Long Tail Needs Community #toc..."
Chilling before my panel at #TOC. Should have gotten up to hear Nick Bilton talk this morning, but last night was gay night. :)
RT: @kottkedotorg : VQR frees their archives online #TOC
So what is the tag #toc ? Top of content?
@acgaughen O'Reilly's Tools of Change conference in NYC, at which the entire audience happily twitters the contents of the panels. #toc
Names of and participants of sessions should be tweeted prior to start. Twitter use FAIL! #TOC
XML: Lots of training required for users. Not at all scalable, lots of bottlenecks. #toc
Gee, if I were mobile and had the $$$, the #TOC conference looks pretty good.
NYT panel on the future of news #toc
#TOC - even sitting in the speaker's lounge clearing out my emails and catching up...I hear a lot of useful convo
#toc @RonHogan publishing couldn't do what Google because they would have had to renegotiate all their contracts
Approx 35% of "ebook" content is 'news' according to #toc Compete to Win session; but data is at least 1 year old.
XML: Adoption takeaway: XML is a great tool, but it has to be communicated effectively, or users will blame XML itself. #toc
@KathrynC Easily fixed. Publishers should REVERT ALL RIGHTS. Let us WRITERS join the 21st century. #TOC
Using Twitter search to follow #toc. Nifty. Twiiter search saves only 100 pages? That's only 5 hours ago. Anyway to see older messages?
XML: When the problems get THIS bad, hit the reset button. #toc
@eykd A bipartisan approach, if you will. #toc
Is the message of #TOC that literature's dead? Kinda. At least that's how it started with Chris Brogan. Maybe dead as a business model?
@TomThompson : Not dead, just resting. #toc
XML servers like MarkLogic or XDB are a good place to store my books in situ. Who knew? #toc
I'm searching for _#TOC_ live on TweetGrid Search - #TOC
XML: 3rd iteration, drupal-based web app. Interesting. #toc
Do what you do best and link to the rest #toc
RT @doctorow : Jarvis: We live in an interregnum between business models, stability will come. ORLY? #toc Wise words from Cory
RT @tobiasbuckell : #toc micropatronage as a pay model. Mmm. The return of micro-feudalism doesn't really excite me. [TRUNCATED]
@julietrelstad haven't seen Kickapps or Lithium social networking apps. r they here? #TOC
@davegray we still talk about unbundling at #tizra, but not everyone gets it.. #toc
RT: @doctorow : What's worse than being linked to a lot and not knowing how to monetize it? Not being linked to at all. #toc
Isn't patronage a form of business model, though? #TOC
it is asked - what about making newspapers into nonprofits? #TOC
Should news even have a business model as its guiding light? #toc
So from Nader's Raiders to ... Nader's Newspapers? Non-profit acivitist journalism? #TOC
Zuckerman example #toc: Eskimo Cookbook from 1951, published by schoolkids. I read this in the stacks at Brown. Must have been his reprint.
RT @chapmanchapman : Workflow Fantasy idea #23: Ah, if only our authors composed in epub xml format... #toc
#toc @doctorow People want it=demand=commercial market. Variable is "how much?" or "how many people" which dictates size/nature of business
XML: Clarification: They outsource the actual keying-in of the XML tags to India, then editors check it, and validators validate it. #toc
@TOCConNow #toc People will continue to pay for books; issue isn't price point but push of distribution. If pull/not push=>underdistributed
Retweeting @timoreilly : RT @jwikert : #TOC Wanna see the new Safari mobile UI? Till midnight tonight, use ID: toc2009, password: toc: ht ...
@RandomHouseCA Ads would probably be more viable in some kind of ebook where they could be updated. #toc DVD trailers get old very fast
bookstores have automated systems for keeping track of inventory none of them are exposed. Bookstores are not fundamentally online #toc
Sessions all running together in my head now. Memory may be full. #toc
Mobipocket also went very smoothly. #toc
SF: Call a designer. 22 hours at $35/hr. porting to InDesign. No way! #toc
Converting my HTML to PDF was surprisingly a nightmare. #toc
#TOC - no wonder more authors don't release their books themselves - it's a right royal pain in the keister
XML was a lot stricter that I was used to but I came to love the structured, well-formed validated lifestyle that we know as XML #toc
SF: DocBook, complete with the ORLY book (though out of print). Some happiness, but not clear where to go next. #toc
SF: Oh, this is DocBook. I know this. ;) #toc
DC Denison: doc book schema 4 xml to bookworm was "just right" (thanx to @Liza ). #TOC
SF: "Now that I'm working in XML" ready for what's next. And XML was JUST RIGHT. #toc
SF: I missed what the end goal is supposed to be, and I don't recognize some of the acronyms. :( #toc
Beware of presentations with too many bullet points #TOC
SF: Ah, turn-over causes problems, indeed. Lost knowledge. #toc
SF: Communication problems. Kindle formatting problems. Kindle communication problems. #toc
#TOC - Amazon apparently does not make it easy for publishers to get reports on how well their Kindle titles are doing.
SF: Need leadership. Expect change. Words that begin with P. Year of the ox. Right. #toc
We had no real sustained growth over time on our website. that needed to change #toc
SF: Content imprisoned on paper. How to get it out and quickly to the growing conversation over sustainable living? #toc
RT @mikecane @ljndawson #toc You got that right. If one were more conspiracy minded...
"Cory Doctorow says conversation is king, but without the content there's no conversation" #toc
SF: Two methods: 1. Blogosphere. Excerpt books, chapters, prefaces, web videos, throw them up on the new blogsite. All original. #toc
Original content. If we make it quality and you make it distributable, it will be sucked out onto the vaccuum of the blogosphere #toc
SF: 2. Joined up with the social networks. Cast a wide net. #toc
#toc Jesse NcDougall: people aren't on facebook to be marketed at. Amen!
#TOC - Chelsea Green's "Post this to Twitter" feature - sounds GREAT!
McDougall: re: facebook, etc. - "when on there, resist the urge to market. " #TOC
McDougal: twitter contests r posted on the Chelsea Green site. great way to get people to tweet about your books. #TOC
#toc Jesse McDougall of Chelsea Green is showing how to run a website and use Twitter...
@KatMeyer If your panel were now, I'd switch. SF stories not doin' much for me. #ToC
All Chelsea Green authors can blog on the CG home page about anything they want #toc
SF: Give central clearinghouse for news, videos, etc. from authors. Provide valuable content to readers, and they'll keep coming back. #toc
SF: Now some basic blog advice. Comments are great. Make posts easy to send to digg et al. #toc
@RonHogan Oh, so @scalzi IS at #TOC?
resources used for chelsea green site: 1 year 1 full-time employee, 3 mos of 2 full-time employees, no online advertising budget #TOC
@msbonn on the podium talking about our reprints biz at um library. #toc
#TOC - UM put 12,000 titles online for free. Within six years, they were into POD because people don't want to read online.
HP is helping us convert scanned page image files to print quality ones. #toc
SF: UM == University of Michigan. #toc
#ToC Trend: "Print on demand ready" will stress people to print a new chapter of their life in beta every week. Life is public and retro.
#TOC tag cloud panel - Kassia, Brian O, Mac, Kirk Biglione (Kassia's DH), Kat Meyer
#toc sci fi guys about to start in Broadway N
#TOC cloud tag - Kassia: last year at BEA, Bezos basically said, "I'm out to destroy your business" - please do more to open AMZN up.
Online commnuity building : John Scalzi, auteur de SF, a construit une fan-base sur son blog Whatever depuis 1998. #toc
#TOC tag cloud - Brian: Google looks to grow the size of the pie, AMZN looks to grow their size of it.
@ @ronhogan panel. First time I've ever seen panelists intro'd by theirtheir twitter @ names. Cool. #toc
@kirkbiglione playing fast and loose with confessions about taxes! #toc
#TOC tag cloud - from the audience - design isn't as great w/Kindle as it was with iPod. Kirk: new types of Kindles iterating quick
#TOC tag cloud - Kat: $359 commits you. Audience: what about iPhone? Stanza.
#toc tag cloud - interoperability Bren devices is key
#toc pnh: readers shopping not just for books but for reliable authors.
« People are shopping not only for content but for reliable authors » #toc
#toc Tor.com is an effort to engage our readers and to show authors how they can do the same thing that @scalzi and @tobiasbuckell have done
PNH: Tor.com is a sandbox for experimentation. #tOC
Fascinating talk re standards this afternoon at #toc. In particular, the exchange of metadata. Openness was stressed, but formats underlie
RT @doctorow Technology giveth and technology taketh away. There's an era for one kind of writer, and an era for another. #toc
"Patricia" sees herself as apprentice to "Venomous Emma" learning Photoshop techniques. Return of craft mentality. #TOC
Authenticity is key, sez @tobiasbuckell . Talking with your readers better than talking at your readers. #toc
Toby Buckell: Honest & authentic desire to engage customers produces more long term results than simply vomiting content does. #TOC
@joebachana I've read whole books on handhelds, but as my co-workers would attest, I have an affinity for teeny text. #TOC
TB: Blogs tend to facilitate "talking down to" voice, one-to-many communication. Twitter levels the playing field. #TOC
#toc Scalzi: treat audience like people with whom you are having a rational conversation
#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
attending the youth and creativity panel. subsequently feeling mad inadequate. #toc
#TOC tag cloud - Brian: Great time for publishing, bad time for publishers.
Too much good info in Y&C panel to tweet from my iPhone. Taking paper notes - more than almost any other session, already. #ToC
RT: @doctorow : @ErrorJustin Here's a quarter, go buy a terabit from S3 #toc -- ROTFLAMO!!!
Teens surveyed consistently using older, crappier versions of software and making do with it. #TOC
#toc Certain trends are starting to emerge: customers are willing to pay for premium content, DRM has no future, and books/ideas = community
@kate_kulikova #TOC = Tools of Change. The O'Reilly TOC for publishing conf. is going on now in NY, hence all the tweets with this hashtag.
#TOC tag cloud - what would your ideal e-reader look like and do? Kat: be like the Kindle (get content easily), except not connected to AMZN
RT: @doctorow : Territory rights in ebooks? Bahaha! ... answer ... with whatever strategy normally used to treat hallucinations. #toc
#toc Ideal eReader features: get content easily w/out having to click on 100 sites, color, social features built in, cheap ($99)...
#toc ...light, sleek, able to light up in the dark, ability to zap between different devices (ie, from kindle to iPhone).
#toc tag cloud call from audience: ragged right margins!
Another snippet from the #ToC: "Word of mouth & familiarity are 85% of fiction sales, 10% is cover, EVERYTHING ELSE is 5%." (RT @doctorow )
#toc So strange to emerge from twitter stream and try to write something about it. Like stumbling off a gangplank
@jasonboog Great post! I will send it to some writers. #TOC Go @scalzi !!
Dying dinosaurs of print: -- because funny cats are so 2008!! #TOC
Twitter must have shut down API to search twitter and TweetGrid. Both are FAIL! Tweets to Twitterfox sloooow. #TOC #FAIL
Just read through the Stanza materials. So the learnings are, well nothing? #TOC
I now defer to @ronhogan for tweets on keynotes. unless i think of something so clever, funny or mind blowing it can't be resisted. #TOC
#TOC - why are my shoulders and back so sore? Why am I so wiped out? @bsandusky , don't answer that.
RT The old world is no longer sufficient and the new world isn't here yet. Jeff Jarvis #TOC (via @thewritermama )
#toc Chris Baty NaNoWriMo. He's pushing amateur angle, but that contest taught me more about deadlines and productivity than an MFA.
Chuffed that Cory @Doctorow is finally making use of Twitter, sharing his thoughts from the #toc conference. Stay a while, Cory! :-)
I hope the spoiler isn't about Lost. #TOC
Since I loathe the idea of NaNoWriMo, it is time for me to walk away and shower. #TOC
bazillions (not actual number given) have already signed up 4 next NaNoWriMo. becuz they discovered writing a book does great things 4u #toc
#TOC - is that how you know you've said something brilliant, by the sounds of frenzied transcription?
#toc ...Chris Baly talking about the feelings involved in books...inspiring
Cory Doctorow at #toc sounds like a Tyler Perry character at a tent revival
Nobody here is scared of the Internet, though. Right? #TOC
#TOC - Nina Paley - "free culture is free enterprise and free markets", not communism.
Kudos to O'Reilly. The stimulus publishers package need. RT @toc : Most video of #toc to go up in coming weeks
#TOC - the trouble with tweeting a visual artist is that words can't capture what she's saying...
#toc Did she just say books weren't expensive to create?
These are you orders: SHOOT the idiot who said information wants to be free. SHOOT NOW!! #TOC
Glad to see that athens film festival gave it a prize! #toc
Why make it free online if you can make $ on container? Free content spreads, good content is own advertising. -Nina Paley #toc
RT @toc : Video of #toc presentations are starting to go up (we'll be posting almost all of 'em in the coming weeks)
NP: "audience distribution" - "free" allows your audience to be your distributor of content. (WOM 4 "packaging" u r selling). #TOC
#toc but other people can make it good, can't they ?
RT @thewritermama : Content is free. Containers are not free. Computers are not free. CDs aren't free. Books aren't free. #TOC
RT @thewritermama : Containers add utility to what's free. #TOC
#toc wrapping up. Great conference - thanks to all who tweeted (and to followers who put up with my superfluous tweets). :)
about 10 people who didn't stick around 4 end just missed out on their chance at the free ereader. guy who won is probably glad of that #toc
@doctorow with no (c) what happens when the imitators become the capitalizors and the artists become victims? society feeds on greed. #TOC
Argh. I come back just in time for it all to be over! Timing! #TOC
#TOC - has risen to the #4 trend on twitter. Follow here:
Fascinant de pouvoir suivre #toc via twitter

#TOC XML in Practice notes
I have all Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin books in paperback, & on Audible, but would buy them again if they were ebooks. Make it so! #toc
@modernevil Thanks for tweeting #ToC, between @doctorow and thee I think it's been a surreal experience-by-proxy.
Colleagues are telling me how tired I look after fllwng #toc & #epharma & participating in an in house mtg at the same time. They're right!
RT @pdlug : #toc please stop redefining "book", you're all information providers who happen to package content in book form (for now)
Organizing thoughts to blog re #TOC for Publishing. Not buying all of Cory Doctorow's keynote. Most authors wear ONE hat. Cory wears many.
RT @thewritermama Publishers are terrified of the Internet b/c it's changing pop culture. #TOC
***shows up at #TOC*** hey guys, anyone want to talk about books on cassette? anyone? anyone? i do so enjoy a good cassette tape recorder!
I'm writing a feature article about Twitter for March PT. If you want to contribute or talk about your experience at #TOC, please DM me!
Back frm #toc & read email frm colleague wro my need for better-designed catalog. "A catalog is just a catalog." WTF. Publishing IS screwed.
Wrapped up meeting at nyu with @moncia re building community with @mediacommons . Still much to digest from #toc.
