Topic: Writing for the Web is radically different from writing for print. This episode explores the down and dirty facts of those differences. For example: its immediacy (and the dangers of that immediacy); how it is used, misused, tweaked and manipulated; how it can be promoted and cross promoted; how what is written stays available for years; examples of people who have mastered its power to the benefit of their careers; as well as how to get started and how to get large numbers of people to read what you have written.
Hosted by Stephen Euin Cobb, this is the June 29, 2011 episode of The Future And You. [Running time: 35 minutes]. This is the first half of a discussion panel recorded before a live audience on June 4, 2011 in Charlotte North Carolina at the SF&F convention ConCarolinas. (The second half will be presented next week.)
News item: Skinbrain (Cerebrodermus Fantastica), your host's new novel, is selling very well and has received its first review. Joseph S. gave it five stars and titled his review: "Great Book." His review reads: "With outstanding attention to detail, Mr. Cobb puts you right in the middle of the action from the beginning. If you're looking to escape into the future for a few hours, and enjoy a great SF read, this book is for you."
