Since 2015, the new models of the world at work have been implemented. These indicate a change in the location of power.
If previously the impetus was seen concentrated in a focal point based on the author, genre, style, category and profile, publisher, reviewer amongst other things, the world has shifted it to an arrangement favouring mobility and remote databases.
In other words the shift from the author to the service provider may be noted. Amazon becomes the newly organized power and the author becomes part of Amazons process. This is the new eco-business world.
The stages of Change that we know is:
1) The past (1990’s) was based on fixed computing, where the individual moves to his device, his publisher, his market, his groups and related.
2) The immediate past present is driven by Mobility (2000’s), where the device can move with the author. The rise of apps, social medias, internet marketplaces, B2B markets and social meetings as with webinars and social messengers as Whats App altered the arrangements from office or home based locations to mobile device based support.
3) Early 2009 to the current year, change has been seen based on the Internet of Things. By now the author is connected to the net more than to people to
drive business, social, discussions, fame, inventories and feedback. Book blogs, author platforms, paid or free portals, internet based agents and sellers, internet based bloggers and promoters are active around the author and the book. Internet based Crowd funding for books, Residencies and freelance or appointed writing assignments are the means of financial backing. The role of meta-data, listopias, author cataloguing sites as Good reads is linked to the centralized internet based service provider as Amazon. The marketplace and readership has multiplied many times over. There are new standards for authors and for the Internet of Things.
4) Automation, the net and devices is not the only scope of the future for authors. There is more excitement ahead. The Internet of Everything (people, processes, data, things) is to expand opportunities, automation and personal growth much further than has been known as yet.
The revolution of the Internet comes with disruption, and this must be managed ahead through adequate assessment and observation of trends. The way people live is to be reformulated. It is the dawn of a new technical era that the next generation is inducted into. The transition will be supported by the growing youth. However for authors the new voice and economical environment becomes a support. Book publishing is now free. Inventories are self managed and clerks are not needed. Sharing platforms are extended and various. Office space, transport costs and related nuances have been controlled.
Perhaps the road is rough in the beginning as the author begins to view the limitless expanse of ocean and recognizes his contribution to be a drop in it. However the drop may participate fully in the oceans rhythms and tides and merge successfully in its laws.
