OhmyNews switch my headlines on Total Print story

OhmyNews have published my story about the Total Print show and LCC conference but they have switched the headlines to put the emphasis on the e-book. I still think the news from the show was the Heidelberg effort to present litho as still relevant. But clearly the online interest is in e-books. The info from Frankfurt has been picked out in the OhmyNews intro.

So what I take from this is that the Web joins things up quite quickly. We do not have to wait for the next London bookfair, might as well look at Frankfurt online. Maybe think of all the UK shows as if they are happening all the time. The BETT and Online Information websites are comprehensive and link to social networks. Learning Technology much the same.

The best report on Frankfurt I can find is from the blog for ePUB Books. Clearly based on actually being there. Apparently Sony expect the Reader to sell in millions. Most of the other hard information is that nothing much was denied. Suggest careful study as a guide to what is possible.

Yup. The article seemed to have two distinct stories... and ebooks will attract more readers than litho...
