Sometimes it seems someone was simply destined for something. For Bill Amstutz, that destiny, was, interestingly enough, being inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Publishing Executive and Book Business magazines have announced the 2010 Inductees into the Publishing Executive Hall of Fame.
I put a challenge out to "Mr. E-Paper" himself, Bob Sacks. Let me spill my drink on his e-book reader and then spill some more on the magazine he was carrying around. Which one would he replace faster?
As a middle child, I never got to ride in the front seat. Because my brothers would fight constantly, the two of them could not ride in the back seat together. I was a peacekeeper.
Instead of two brothers, publishers have two customers: advertisers and readers. Content is like the middle child between the two. Publishers connect someone who wants to sell a product to someone who might want to buy it by giving the potential buyer something that they need - content.
