Frankfurt 2010: Our Digital Future with Evan Schnittman

Interesting interview with Schnittman, the former vice president of corporate and business development at Oxford University Press who in August became Managing Director of Group Sales and Marketing, Print and Digital at Bloomsbury. "I think last year was the final time you'll have heard folks refer to publishing's 'digital future'. We are in the centre of that universe now.
