Beyond the Book: Engage the World with Your Ideas

For several years, Christopher Kenneally of the Copyright Clearance Center has been hosting a series of conservations around the country called Beyond The Book. The goal of the series has been to "explore issues facing the information content industry and help creative professionals realize the full potential of their works, while encouraging respect for intellectual property and the principles of copyright."

Each of these conversations are now available as podcasts at BeyondTheBookcast. You can also subscribe to the entire series on iTunes.

I participated in a couple of these sessions.

One took place at the National Society of Newspaper Columnists conference in Boston with fellow panelists Myra MacPherson and Noah Lukeman. It was posted in February 2007 (BTB #12).

The other was a conversation with Christopher and fellow panelists Holly Stuart Hughes, Paul Dry, and Kristal Bent Zook in Philadelphia at the U.S. Constitution Center that was posted today (BTB #24).

At the beginning of the podcast from the Philadelphia session posted today, Christopher and I talk at length about the state of ethical behavior in the publishing industry.
