Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research Interview starts at 11:17 and ends at 36:16 “I don’t think they [Amazon] really expect the fashion angle to be a big driver of these [Echo Look] devices.

Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research   Interview starts at 12:00 and ends at 44:01 I’ve got to write this down in a way that helps people understand how this cycle works, where technology comes in and allows us to render scarcity irrelevant.

Vice President and Principal Analyst, Forrester Research Interview Starts at 18:51 As Amazon, you want to say to people, “We really don’t care what device you own. Now, we have a few devices that we’re going to give you that are optimized for your Amazon customer relationship.” It could be an eReader, it could be a […]

BookExpo America 2013 panel on Self-Publishing Starts at 10:12 I actually think disruption is the best defense for publishing. Self-publishing is turning out to be a potential boon for publishers, because you can sit there and watch people market themselves, share their ideas, see which things gather any kind of momentum in the marketplace, and then make […]
