SXSW fall-out

I know there has been much talk online about the ill-equipped publishing presenters at the now infamous panel, "New Think for Old Publishers," at this year's South by Southwest conference/festival in Austin, TX. (I attended the better known music festival years ago, in college, since I went to UT.) I thought I'd post just one link about the panel that includes other links, and is quite well done.

Peter Miller, director of publicity at Bloomsbury and owner of a used bookstore in Brooklyn called Freebird Books, wrote about his experience on the panel for Publishers Weekly. He framed it as a word of warning for anyone thinking of putting together a publishing panel at next year's festival...

Enjoy!
