Tools of Change, O’Reilly’s (surely profitable) conference series that enables publishing executives to articulate just how afraid they are of nonbook technologies, produced a transcript of its Fall 2009 session. As a Microsoft Word document. (With unreadably long paragraphs.)

Isn’t this a lot worse than Amazon 1984ing your Kindle? At other events, they’ve airlifted in Cory Doctorow to lecture publishers on technical reality. O’Reilly, heal thyself.

For the benefit of this multi-million-dollar publishing mini-empire, I have created a proper HTML version of the transcript. O’Reilly may hoover it in and publish it on their crap Web site. Free ePubs all around!

(Where, incidentally, are all the other transcripts and, more usefully, podcasts?)
