Some thoughts on books in our digital world

Not too long ago, we organized Unbound: Advancing Book Publishing in a Digital World, a conference examining how the book business has changed and how it will continue to evolve. Publishers from every part of the industry — some who are already part of the Google Books Partner Program and some who are not — heard from thought leaders and industry veterans who are taking advantage of our increasingly digital world.

One presenter summed it up quite nicely:
The future of the book is secure. It's what we do with it, how we promote it, how we develop it, and how we put new layers of meaning around it in a digital context which becomes extremely important.
From positive posts, like this summary from GalleyCat, to this more critical review from if:book, we've seen mentions of Unbound on a number of blogs.

Want to see some of what Seth Godin, Chris Anderson, Cory Doctorow, Tim O'Reilly, and others had to say? Check out this short video of highlights:
