The revolution will not be centralized

In today's publishing, as one Amazon executives says, “The only really necessary people…are the writer and the reader” (via AoSHQ).

...the distinction between the published and the unpublished writer is about to become much less clear.

This is the kind of disintermediation that the internet does, and it’s going to upend a lot of lives and careers. We will still have gatekeepers; people will still need help sifting through the flood of new titles to find what they are looking for.

We will still have gatekeepers but their last names won't be "Atwood" or "Frum."
