The differences between Web 2.0 and Web 3.0
The future of the internet
Understanding the potential of Web 3.0
Australian book publishers are grappling with global disruption. They are also facing huge changes to their industry. Digital technologies are changing the entire paradigm. There is a lot of economic uncertainty in the industry. But there could be a way out. Researchers at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) are investigating how blockchain technology can help them not only survive, but thrive.
“Blockchain technology underpins cryptocurrency. It is being used for rights and royalties management for numerous industries. For example, music distribution, and the tracking of products including beef, diamonds and the sale of art. There is a small, but growing volume of research and innovative technological experiments that focus on blockchain for book publishing. But, most of it is focused on enabling authors to self-publish and earn royalties.”
Sue Wright is the Director of Tiny Owl Workshop. She said the project allowed Tiny Owl to create new revenue and royalty streams. In this case, it came from the interactions between the author and the publishing house. This ‘extra’ intellectual property is something all publishers create as they work to bring books to market. And it is this that can go on sale using blockchain tech.
Said Professor Ryan, “Using open-source blockchain technology, the project managed intellectual property agreements and royalty payments, and tracked purchases with a custom digital ledger.”
“Working with blockchain is still a very technical and complex process. Our project required in-depth knowledge of information technology, information systems and coding, as well as legal expertise and an understanding of the creative aspects of book publishing.”

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
