Everyone has a stake in the digital reading experience

Louis Rosenfeld says a good reading experience is shaped by everyone involved.

In a recent interview with O’Reilly online managing editor Mac Slocum, Louis Rosenfeld (@louisrosenfeld), publisher at Rosenfeld Media, LLC, said there’s a collective responsibility for a good user experience:

“There are three or four parties that should be sharing ownership of user experience — the author, the community of readers, the publisher, and the device makers. I think the lines are going to necessarily be blurry; I’m not sure they’re ever really going to stabilize. The bigger issue is people — all four of those groups — basically acknowledging they have some ownership … but also acknowledging that their role is going to be shifting.” [Discussed at 1:13.]

Rosenfeld also said, a bit surprisingly given all the focus on digital these days, that his preferred reading “device” is still print [discussed at 3:22].
