British Council Talk

April 13, 2007

Thanks for all the thoughts that people offered in advance of my talk today at the British Council. I’ve posted the slides and a bunch of links, which you can read here, and I’ll post some more about it later.

In short, I think it went well – in that I explained a few things reasonably clearly, and I didn’t clam up, which was my main worry. Interestingly, about a third of the room had never really used the internet, another third didn’t believe that anything would ever stop people reading paper books, and the rest were mildly interested – which, despite these guys being from all over the world, some without any internet access at all, and most from places where access is limited at best – is basically the same reaction as I get from UK publishers.
