What Traditional Publishers Can Learn from Self-Publishers | O’Reilly Webcasts

This Friday O’Reilly Media will broadcast a free webcast about self and traditional publishing as part of their O’Reilly Tools of Change online event series. The subject of the webcast is ‘What Traditional Publishers Can Learn from Self-Publishers’. It’s a theme I have written about many times here on The Independent Publishing Magazine.
O’Reilly Media has pulled together an impressive list of guests for the webcast. Below is an introductory piece taken from the O’Reilly webcast site, but it is a little misleading about who is presenting from Blurb, listing CEO Eileen Gittens and VP of Product Chad Jennings. I suspect it is actually going to be Chad Jennings.
The webcast is free and you need to register for it here.

The lines between traditional and self-publishing is blurring. In fact, some traditional publishers are launching their own self-publishing imprints. We’ve lined up four leaders of the self-publishing world to share lessons learned and how we can all work together. The webcast features insights from Eileen Gittins (CEO of Blurb), Bob Young (CEO of Lulu), Mark Coker (Smashwords Founder) and Pete Nikolai (Director at Westbow Press, the self-publishing imprint of Thomas Nelson).
