Many people predicted that 2018 will be remembered as the year when blockchains entered mainstream life, beyond the domain of intrepid adventurers.
Books and community engagement are as mainstream — and global — as you can get. If that prediction holds true, then Publica has a busy year ahead!
As CEO, my contribution means getting out there. Talking to authors, agents, marketers, partners, institutions, publishers, writers’ organizations like the Alliance Of Independent Authors, etc.
Publica’s world tour 2018 will be an adventure. The Publica platform will mature, authors and readers and organizations will become familiar with it, and blockchains in general will evolve in the media landscape. We’ll blog and podcast from the road, keeping you informed of what will be an amazing year.
Writers conferences and other events on Publica’s World Tour 2018. See you there!
We’ll add more as we can fit them in. [Updated March 29.]
