When I was growing up in the Silicon Valley, I never imagined that I’d be so interested in technology or speaking at the International Digital Publishing Forum. I loved books and literature, not computers. But here I am, about to ask "Should a CEO write code?" on Friday, 28 August, at the Beijing Book Fair.
 
I’ve gradually come to understand that we can’t separate editorial and technology departments if we want to develop a truly 21st-century industry, and that technology can enable us to share knowledge and ideas, enhance communities, and provide entertainment in a myriad of new ways. I believe that we all need to become more technically literate, whether we’re in the boardroom or working on manuscripts. I’ve made a habit of trying new programs myself, so that I understand their potential - and their pitfalls.
 
If you’ll be in Beijing, please join us! If you have views on this subject or stories to share, please do drop me a line. I’ll be posting updates at the Berkshire Blog and writing a feature article on the subject, too, thanks to the great input I’ve already had from many of my publishing colleagues.
 
All good wishes, Karen.
Karen Christensen
