I am getting an eye twitch from trying to follow all the tweets for the Digital Book World Conference (#dbw12). I've read lots of interesting tweets, and have clicked several links that I have full intentions of reading. But I'm still following the twitter stream. My brain and reading speed just can't keep up.
So this post is as much for me so I can go back and catch up on all my good intentions, as it is for you. I have not read these links, so reader beware (though they all seem to come from good sources).

The buzzwords seem to be be metadata (hmmm, sounds like last year's conference, what have we learned and/or put into action?), partnerships (Bookmasters is great for this!), and power buyers.
The Romance panel stirred up a lot of blushing, but also a lot of interesting thoughts about what people expect, want, and are willing to pay for.
Now the link love:
