SXSW Panel: The Rise of the Unbook

The SXSW Panel Picker is up and one of the panels Deron and I are involved with made the first round cut, The Rise of the Unbook. The concept is pretty straightforward:

Driven by new technologies and ideas, the world of publishing is transforming. A new form is emerging; an ever-evolving, never-finished book, typically characterized by a curator, community and focused topic area: The unbook. We’ll discuss this new medium and its implications.

The Panel:
Ben Vershbow (New York Public Library)
Dave Gray (Co-Founder of the unbook movement, Founder of XPLANE, author of Marks and Meaning)
Russell Davies (Author, Wired columnist)
Andrew Simone (Clusterflock, design researcher)
Deron Bauman (Founder, Clusterflock, author, documentary film-maker)
Christian Crumlish (Curator of Yahoo Pattern Library, unbook author)

If this looks interesting to you, then we would appreciate a thumbs up. You can register here to vote.

UPDATE: An interesting and unintentional companion panel worth eyeballing is Snarkmarket’s Kindle 2020 (see a detailed explanation here).
