President of The Future of Publishing

Interview starts at 8:19 and ends at 44:04

"I’m convinced that if you want to retain your job in publishing moving forward, unless you’re demonstrably technology adept, you’re going to lose your job. Yeah, there’s room for 100 amazing editors who can’t even use a computer, but that’s not the run-of-the-mill worker in publishing today. They need to be imbued with a knowledge of technology."
