The Place of e-Books and the Future of Electronic Publishing

Creative Kiwis: "Write, Create, Innovate"

THE PLACE OF E-BOOKS AND THE FUTURE OF ELECTRONIC PUBLISHING
“The next information revolution is well under way…It is not a revolution in technology, machinery, techniques, software, or speed. It is a revolution in CONCEPTS.
(Drucker, 1998)

“Money is what fueled the industrial society. But in the informational society, the fuel, the power, is knowledge. One has now come to see a new class structure divided by those who have information and those who must function out of ignorance. This new class has its power not from money, not from land, but from knowledge.”
– John Kenneth Galbraith

Writing and Formula1 (Racing + Writing in the Zone)

“When this happens it’s the best feeling a driver*  can have.” 
* or writer

“This happens when finding the right words is no longer a struggle. Words simply flow into your head faster than you can write them down (or press the keyboard). You read what you have just written and say: ‘Bloody hell. That’s good. Did I really write that? Wonder where all that came from’.”
– A “nony-moose” writer
