As we look towards 2010, we can already predict that e-readers and digital editions of everything — from magazines to books — will be an important focus for the media in the coming year.
That’s why we’ll be checking out mediabistro.com’s newest conference, the eBook Summit, starting tomorrow morning and continuing through Wednesday afternoon. We’re most looking forward to hearing comments from speakers who are journalists or who work for journalistic institutions, like Katty Kay of “BBC World News America,” The Associated Press’ Jennifer Stenger and Joshua Benton from Nieman Journalism Lab.
But if you can’t take time off work to scoot over to New World Stages, mediabistro.com will also be broadcasting the conference’s keynote addresses live online. We’ll also be posting dispatches live from the conference here and there, and you can follow all the action on WebNewser, mediabistro.com’s publishing blog GalleyCat and our newest blog, eBookNewser.
