Assessment Task Number 3

Question Chosen: 1. ‘It makes increasingly less sense even to talk about a publishing industry, because the core problem publishing solves—the incredible difficulty, complexity, and expense of making something available to the public—has stopped being a problem.’ (Clay Shirky, ‘Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable’,www.shirky.com/weblog/2009/03/newspapers-and-thinking-the-unthinkable /). Are digital and networked media dismantling the “publishing industry”? Is it being replaced? If so, what is replacing it? If not, what is the publishing industry becoming, and how is it doing so? Are there new difficulties and complexities or expenses involved?

I have chosen to publish my work through flickr, the link is here, http://www.flickr.com/photos/feliciapserras/sets/72157630003637461/

my story uses current and past examples to illustrate what has become of the distribution of the publishing industry today, enjoy! 🙂
