What Is Self-Publishing?

The Internet provides everyone with the opportunity to be their own publisher. Self-publishing, whether via a web site or a blog, is the publishing of the future. Already, popular Blogs and Bloggers have surfaced as sources for the main stream media . The ability to conceive, develop, and publish ideas and do so in a matter of minutes, makes real time news inevitable, and pushes printed media and even production quality news media into the slow lane.

There was a bit in the Music Forum the other day on NYFS about Radiohead releasing their new album without a record company via their web site. It’s cheaper for the fans, bigger percentage and more money for the band, and they’ve sold over a million downloads and boxed CDs. (http://www.inrainbows.com/)

How can you not see the benefit for all in that?
