William P. Kane is the Director of Digital Publishing at Wake Forest University.  They checked, and he is a librarian, with an MLS from the University of Pittsburgh -- from there something about his having been a janitor, then a millworker, and then a schoolteacher in Pennsylvania, then a systems and collection development librarian in Detroit, then a dot-com adventurer with Alibris out of California.  In any case, he tells everyone who asks --and so far, it's only been his mom -- that he’s now a "digital publisher," and that as such he has never felt more alive.
