A look at the future of publishing from Podcamp HFX

Sunday, about 200 people and I descended on the Alderney Public Library and Theatre for the 2nd Annual Podcamp HFX.

It was a day of discussion on everything to do with social media. From the latest stats (the average Facebook user is now 53!) and talks on usability. The big highlight of the day however was the amazing keynote from Mclean Greaves.

He gave us a sneak peak at the new 'iPad' due to be released this Wednesday. I had recently written a column for the local paper on the subject, speculating that the device might do for the publishing industry what the iPod did for the music industry.

To give you an idea what publishing might look like, starting this week, take a look at this video for Sports Illustrated.
