"The End of the Beginning" re: Digital Transition in Book Publishing

Almost goes without saying: Jane Friedman once again the smartest person in the room @ Digital Book World. PW: "The CEOs agreed that they face many challenges, but said there are many opportunities as well. Jane Friedman, CEO of Open Road Integrated Media and former CEO of HarperCollins, said the industry is 'vitale and vibrant,' adding that at no point in her career as she seen such change and that things will never go back to the way they were. 'It’s the end of the beginning' of the digital transition, Friedman said."
