Mitch Lasky‘s talk from GDC this year, Is Publishing Dead, is great. Blunt, funny, smart, and most of all, thoughtful in a way that conference talks rarely achieve. I’ve thought a fair amount about how digital distribution and cheap tools will affect publishers and media of all forms, and Lasky nails the question at its bones. Highly recommended.
(It also doesn’t hurt that Lasky is a partner at Benchmark, which funded Quip. Coincidence, I swear!)
