Publishing is really “making something public.” It is just the mode of transmission of stock from one brain to another brain. Doesn’t necessarily have to be a book. Yelling is a publishing tool, as is singing, clay tablets, scrolls, codex books, films and tv, graffiti, texting, letters, rude notes and the internet. Publishing tools are changing. Change is not always good. Not always good for everyone.
