I only met Morgan Cowie of BookNet Canada very briefly during the BookCamp Toronto event but it wasn’t hard to recognize her genuine passion and enthusiasm. She participated in the Death to DRM session that I lead in the morning and contributed great ideas to Lisa Charter’s session on the Quagmire of International Rights. Unafraid to speak up and contribute, she may have been the secret star of the event. But more on BookCamp Toronto in my next post.
Now Morgan is writing about the signal flares of interesting innovations in publishing and digital distribution on the BookNet Canada blog. She’s started to write ‘intermittently’ on new publishing business models. In her first two posts she highlights developments in ‘liquid textbooks‘ and the still mysterious to me thing called Scribd.
