Press Release: January 8, 2009
You are invited to a free live webcast: Youth & Creativity: Emerging Trends in Self-Expression & Publishing Youth are approaching digital self-expression and publishing from a more organic, collaborative angle than previous generations. They jump right in when the creative urge strikes, collaborating with others from around the globe, and 'publishing' an ongoing stream of of-the-moment, mashed-up, throw-away media. Learn more about our research findings on youth and the future of creativity. This webcast is sponsored by the Tools of Change for Publishing Conference, held Feb. 9-11 in New York City. For conference details and registration information, visit www.toccon.com.
This is part of a series of live webcasts for the publishing industry from O'Reilly's Tools of Change for Publishing.

Driven by the Internet, technology is fundamentally transforming publishing. Creation, development, production, distribution, and consumption have all been touched by the changes and challenges that have accompanied the greatest shifts in publishing since the printing press. Which technologies are important? Which provide exciting business opportunities? And what are the strategic questions you need to consider in adopting new models?
O'Reilly's Tools of Change for Publishing division seeks to connect the people, companies, and organizations asking and answering the questions that will define the future of publishing. (TOC is a nod to the term publishing vets will recognize as referring to the Table of Contents of a book -- a deliberate choice signaling our intent to set the agenda for the future of publishing.)
