O'Reilly Mini Tools of Change (TOC) for Publishing

Full program available online at http://oreilly.com/minitoc-charleston.html.

O'Reilly Media's Tools of Change and BiblioLabs in cooperation with The Charleston Conference presents Mini TOC Charleston, a one day event of conversation focusing on the thriving publishing, tech, and bookish-arts community.

Mini TOC Charleston is geared at librarians, large & small publishers, self-published authors, creative collectives, information hobbyists, journalists, historians, bloggers, or online experts seeking a better understanding what ubiquitous content means for the future of commercial publishing.

Our definitions and expectations of what commercial publishing is have changed over the past ten years. Today, anyone can publish; and beyond the philosophical reaction to whether this is "good or bad", the practical reality of managing today's information stream presents unprecedented challenges and opportunities. Content has become omnipresent. Developing efficient and high-value commercial systems for interested customers and content creators to share at the right time is the art and business of the future. What does this mean for the future of publishing?

What is a Mini TOC?

So, you may be asking yourself, what is a mini TOC? Well, for one — it's smaller than the "big" TOC held in New York every year. The attendance for Mini TOC's are limited — at Mini TOC Charleston, we'll have a maximum crowd of 300 smart people. And small is good. While the focus at Mini TOC is on the intersection of technology and publishing — just like at the "big" TOCs — at Mini TOC the crowd is small, the atmosphere is intimate and informal, and all the emphasis is on attendees and presenters sharing the conversation.

Program Lineup

We're still developing and adding to the program, but sessions confirmed so far include:

  • Libraries in the 21st Century: Panel Discussion on the role of Librarian as Curator
  • Challenges and Opportunities in an Age of Ubiquitous Content
  • The Importance of Being Earnest: Why Style and Voice Matter in a world Crowded with Content
  • The Age of Avocation: Creativity and Commerce
  • You Still have to Sell Something: Global Perspectives on Content Creation & Distribution
  • Device Agnostic: Sharing Content and Collaboration Across Platforms

Juried Product Development Forums

The Forums are focus groups designed for publishers and vendors to gather market input from librarians on the development of a particular product or service, and for librarians to discuss market issues with publishers and vendors invited to participate in a forum.

The Forum sessions for librarians are intended for library staff and will be closed to other publishers and vendors. Invitations will be sent to registered library workers by email, and there will be a staffed sign-up table at the Conference for attendees to register on-site. In addition, publishers & vendors may invite their customers to sign up for this event. Distributors, consultants or individuals from other companies will be admitted if the participating publisher or vendor has added their name to the list of attendees for their session.

Publishers and vendors have a unique opportunity for feedback from librarians regarding the design, features, feasibility or pricing of a particular product or service that addresses internal debates and shortens the sales cycle.

Enlighten Us, But Make it Quick!

Charleston, South Carolina has come onto the radar screen of the world. With a rich culture, history, landscape and a vibrant economic climate, it is a beautiful place to live, work and create. Chosen this year as America’s top travel destination by Conde Nast Traveler Magazine, it shows no signs of slowing down. Charleston’s arts, dining & music scenes are among the best in the world, with an attitude that mixes Deep South hospitality with punk rock defiance. In the last decade a thriving technology scene has also emerged — including a world-class, city-funded technology incubator (the Charleston Digital Corridor) and numerous start-ups pushing into new areas of web and mobile product development.

Join some of the media world’s top thinkers, influencers and technology luminaries as we show off the best Charleston has to offer in the engaging Ignite format.

What is Ignite?

Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds for a total of just 5 minutes.  Get more info or purchase Tools of Change tickets at http://oreilly.com/minitoc-charleston.html.
