Time for some de-specializing!

Monday 26 October, 15:00 (40 minutes)

Gerardo Kloss, ,

For quite a long time we have been pushed toward hiper-specialization. Hardcore sciences and technologies make us think that we can actually perform better if we disconnect from context and become experts in an ever-shrinking field of activity. But we, members of a diverse little world where Typographers, Designers, Publishers, Authors, Proofreaders, Booksellers, Printers and such variety of species have to live together, cannot afford such an expert ignorance. We all work with one and the same thing: the reading experience of a customer. So, it is time for some de-specializing.
