Welcome to the 66th episode of the Mediatwits podcast, with Mark Glaser and Rafat Ali as co-hosts. Sadly, this marks the last episode with Rafat Ali as co-host and our last episode of the year. In the new year, Mediatwits will be revamped as more of a weekly roundtable discussion moderated by Mark Glaser. But our last show was a fascinating one, an in-depth discussion on the state of the book publishing business, the future of print books and how e-books might evolve. Our guests were O'Reilly's Joe Wikert, Movable Type Management's Jason Allen Ashlock and BiblioCrunch CEO Miral Sattar. How can traditional book publishers and literary agents survive in a digital future, and will print books become endangered?
