“The Publishing of the Future Is ›Networked Publishing‹” (Helmut von Berg)

In this article, Helmut von Berg, Director Klopotek, provides an extended and more detailed version of his closing remarks of the 2011 Forum. Using practical examples and mind maps, he illustrates his vision of ›networked publishing‹, examines the impact of changes to the way tasks and roles are organised in publishing houses, and explains the characteristics of online search possibilities which could be much more useful than existing search options.

  1. “In its core argument this document is impressive and convincing.
    I believe that a new philosophy of content production is long overdue and you are shaping the key concepts here.
    Now what I want is the parallel argument that demonstrates that the way people work and communicate necessitates this type of linked data approach!”
