Greetings, Association of American University Presses! Are You Ready to Rock?
Quick Study grinds to a halt (no more postings, no comments going up until Sunday) as I head off to the annual meeting of the Association of American University Presses.
It is being held this year in Minneapolis, which is sort of the holy land of American Trotskyism -- scene of the glorious 1934 Teamsters' strike -- though I am pretty sure this is a coincidence.
With luck, some of the attendees will remember the report from Book Expo.
I'm going to be on a panel about blogging on Friday. The program for the whole conference is here. It's all way more "insider baseball" than Book Expo.
My one-time employer, the Chronicle, is hosting a "dessert reception" tonight, thereby manifesting, lest anyone forget it, that they have more money than God. All I can offer people is my business card and some attractive refrigerator magnets. That and whatever my attention and comments may be worth.
Part of my presentation on Friday will involve telling people to read certain books, since it's impossible to think about new media very seriously otherwise. (You sure don't know anything about blogs if you just look at blogs.)
It is the sort of advice that will soon make me either notorious or hopelessly irrelevant. Actually I have a pretty good idea how that one is going to turn out.
