Vanity Fair Analyzes the eBook Summit

VF.pngToday mediabistro.com’s eBook Summit turned up in a Vanity Fair feature, as the magazine asked: “Whoever said digital publishing was boring?”

Vanity Fair blogger Lauren Sozio wrote a long feature about the conference, focusing on Jane Friedman‘s new pubishing company and Douglas Rushkoff‘s scrappy keynote address. Earlier this week, GalleyCat collected all the Summit’s press coverage in one handy post.

The essay also pondered a presentation by Sony Digital president Steve Haber. Here’s an excerpt from the article: “Haber sealed his lecture with the fatalistic advice that “we have to cannibalize our own business because, if we don’t, someone will do it for us.’ This forecast comes from a man who, over his 20 years in consumer electronics, has seen a series of paradigm shifts from LP to CD–and digital to paper–get the better of the technophobes.” (Via eBookNewser)
