My Impressions of Digital Book World 2014

I recently attended Digital Book World 2014 in NYC and wanted to write a little bit about my experiences and opinions of the conference. First, I just wanted to thank Inkling for sending me to the conference as part of company training. Employees can elect to visit conferences and workshops and Inkling sent me to the conference in NYC from San Francisco all expenses paid, so I appreciate that.

One of my litmus tests for whether a conference was good or not is if I come home seeing parts of the world in a new way.

How was Digital Book World? Well, let me just say that it made me really miss the passing of Tools of Change. I personally found Digital Book World a bit corporate and stuffy, to be honest. I found many of the speakers not as well prepared as I would have liked, and many of them didn’t seem terribly passionate.
