You may have caught Tokyo-based design Craig Mod's recent online piece on the state of print and digital book publishing, "Books in the Age of the iPad" -- it got so much attention even the New York Times took notice -- but before it got written up as a proper essay it was in the form of talk given during Tokyo's "Artalking" series, and before that the idea was presented in this presentation at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 68. Craig also covered the re-launch of one of his many projects, the newly tweet-powered Hitotoki.

Books in the Age of the iPad
"Print is dying. Digital is surging. Everyone is confused." In today's Presentation of the Day, "Books in the Age of the iPad" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 68, writer/designer/developer Craig Mod prophesies the impending doom of text-only publishing, and welcomes with open arms the oncoming (ongoing?) revolution in digital publishing.

We Want Your Presentation
BitSummit MMXIV is now behind us, and what a fantastic celebration of indie gaming that was! We were able to record 10 presentations from participating indie game developers on the show floor during the event -- check out our event page to see who took part -- and we'll be publishing these presentations in this Channel towards the end of the week. While at the festival, we met quite a few participants who were interested in taking part in our recordings, but weren't able to prepare a presentation on the spot, and so we're opening up the Channel. If you took part in BitSummit MMXIV and would like to record a PechaKucha presentation to be included here, get in touch! It can be about your experience at BitSummit, about the games you had on show, or an overview of your experience in gaming. Share your story!
