Saturday May 3rd I had the pleasure to interview Russ Grandinetti, VP Kindle Content for Amazon. He is the guy in charge of everything related to Kindle except from hardware and devices.
We talked about new e-ink devices coming soon during next months, social reading, self publishing and more. It is one hour conversation in English from the International Journalism Festival 2014 #ijf14.

We can instantly communicate with everyone ion every moment around the world. I could send You a photo from my phone traveling by train and You can receive it after a few seconds sit on the beach 10.000 kms far or more. It’s a daily miracle and we don’t even think about it.
That’s why a simple old postcard, coming from the other side of the Atlantic after more than one month, hand written with love, could be very precious, more than You can imagine.
Thank You Ricky
