  • About Digital Distribution

    We are living a revolution that will forever change the way we distribute and consume content.
    Yesterday, paper was the most convenient way to publish and share the written word. With the rise of the Internet, things changed but the publishing business was (by its' own fault) left behind.
    Today, the word changes even faster and a new way of communicating with each other and with our readers is on the making.

    I call this a revolution in distribution (regardless of devices), the digital-distribution, and this is the blog to discuss ideas and share knowledge among each other.
