As we remarked to more than a few people at the show — everyone seems to be so busy Twittering a running tally of the show, no one goes home and writes about it any more! A welcome exception is Kiel Phegley, whose coverage of Thursday’s ICv2 conference, Four Color Forum, is now up, and it gives you all the important quotes:
Levy: Raise your hand, please, if you have an ipod in this room. [Virtually everyone raises their hands.] See. Now raise your hand if you’ve got a Kindle or another e-book device. [Three people raise their hands]. That’s like, maybe, not even a fifth. So once the same amount of people raise their hands on having an e-book device – and by the way, I personally believe that the current generation of e-book devices is not the type of technology is not the type of technology that’s going to become ubiquitous yet. I think there’s a lot of technologies out there like digital ink and e-paper that will really provide the book reading experience in a new book format. That type of technology is becoming cost effective with the right company…once there’s one of those , a device that all of you buy and your kids by, then we’ll be dealing with the same issues as the music industry.
…and more. Check it out.
