Check out the inital podcast from Michael Cart on libraries, books, and publishing. Former director of the Beverly Hills Public Library and currently a "Booklist" magazine columnist and reviewer, Cart is also the author/editor of a dozen books and,for fifteen years, hosted the nationally syndicated television author interview program "In Print." His weekly podcasts for Infopeople will cover the whole range of activity, trends, and important new titles in publishing for all ages. And every other week he will focus on graphic novels, one of the hottest new trends in publishing.
This first 15-minute podcast looks at the New York Times Magazine article from May 14 entitled, "What Will Happen to Books?" His unique perspective as an author and librarian brings an even-handed perspective to the controversy surrounding the "google-ification" of books and what impact this may (will) have on our current ideas of intellectual property. Welcome Michael!
