Were you at the 4th Electric Bookshop?

A good bit of debate started but there wasn’t time to explore the issues of free culture, the future of the book business and the consumer cultures of the internet.

If anyone who was there would like to comment on the debate further, post your comments on this post and we will publish them provided that they are not offensive or defamatory, (or trying to sell us Ambiens, whatever that is.)
Here are the links to which we were referring this evening.
