Podcast: 3D Dreams | Twitter Corrections | eBook Barriers

By Devon Glenn 

On today’s social media edition of the Morning Media Menu, GalleyCat editor Jason Boog discussed new rules for a changing world.

At this week’s Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo, we saw advancements in 3D printing that could change the way doctors approach reconstructive surgery, but companies will need approval from the FDA and a whole lot of funding to do it.

On Twitter, journalists are calling for new ways to post corrections after erroneous reports circulated on Twitter following the Boston Marathon bombings.

Finally, we discussed the lawsuit that indie booksellers have filed against Amazon and Big Six publishers over digital rights management practices that limit smaller retailers’ entry to the eBook market. Indie authors are a big part of the ecosystem on Amazon, but retailers say that that those opportunities do not extend to them. Boog talked about a few bookstores where self-published authors can sell their books to keep the indie spirit alive.
