Full Interview: Baratunde Thurston on Marketing Your Book in a Digital Age | Spark

These days, authors are increasingly expected to do more than just, you know, write books. They’re expected to have a presence on social media, to have a public profile, and to connect with fans and potential new readers. Baratunde Thurston is taking that a step further. Actually, he’s taking it several steps further. He’s a comedian, Director of Digital for The Onion, and he’s the author of the forthcoming book, How to Be Black. He’s assembled a volunteer ‘street team’ to help market the book through word-of-mouth and social media, and is modeling the marketing of the book on a political campaign. Is this the future for all authors? And what if you’re a low profile person who just wants to write? http://www.cbc.ca/spark/2011/12/full-interview-baratunde-thurston-on-marketing-your-book-in-a-digital-age/

Niche Subscriptions on Spark

Cathi Bond is here to talk about the trend of niche publications – having a subscription that’s not to a magazine, but to actual physical objects that come in the mail. It’s a different, analog approach to customization. Hyper-curated almost. And Cathi and Nora wonder if it’s an example of a post-digital fetishization of artifacts. http://www.cbc.ca/spark/2011/12/spark-166-december-18-21-2011/

Full Interview: David Weinberger on LibraryCloud and ShelfLife | Spark

Last week, Nora interviewed David Weinberger about libraries of the future. David is a writer, a senior research at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and he’s the co-director of The Harvard Library Innovation Lab. Nora and David discussed two projects the lab is working on, both related to metadata – information about information – and how it impacts the ways we find and navigate knowledge. So if you were waiting for a public radio podcast about library metadata (and really, who hasn’t?) today’s your lucky day. http://www.cbc.ca/spark/2011/12/full-interview-david-weinberger-on-librarycloud-and-shelflife/
