I find Tom's blog very intellectually stimulating. The problem is, I think he's got it all wrong. Publishing is increasingly something people don't do anymore. Instead, it's being replaced by three distinct, separable activities:
- Content Production
If you want to become what Tom would call a publisher these days, you don't set out to become a monolith combining all three. Instead, you figure out how to source all three, often working with multiple partners in each category.
