The future is already here – it's just not evenly distributed. – William Gibson

 

The Post-Digital Publishing workshop is doing its own little bit of “future re-distribution” for open source and indie publishing. Not that much re-distribution help is needed since an imminent deluge of books is already set loose, as the book goes digital and universities open their libraries with Open Access publishing. The four days of the workshop cover: cyber-librarianship, DIY publishing tools, indie infrastructures and the battle for reimagining the university.

 

This is a hack day where different members of the publishing community can come together to showcase their projects from across the spectrum of open source tools and platforms used in publishing. Some areas of interest are: eReader modding, the social book, collaborative writing like Etherpad and collaborative publishing, fonts and DTP tools, graphic design tool kits, open standards, mobile reading, app making and machine reading and writing, to name just a few.
As this is a DIY Publishing day, it is also DIY in its format, on each day of the workshop we collectively select a number of projects to work on and then hack away over the course of the day.
