E-books could finally inch past print in 2018
Tech Crunch
PricewaterhouseCoopers analysts are predicting (again) that e-books could soon edge out print as publishers' most lucrative products. What does this mean? Essentially that as e-book popularity and pricing stabilizes, users will spend more on bits than they will on pulp. The resulting switch could be the final nail in the print coffin. The New York Times created a chart of rising revenue from books, leading to slightly over 50 percent U.S. penetration in 2018.

Want to be more creative? Don't sleep
LinkedIn
On Wednesday, famed sportswriter Bill Simmons released a podcast where he interviewed Lorne Michaels, the man who created and still runs Saturday Night Live. In the interview, Michaels said something particularly interesting about the creative process. Simmons asked him about the grueling nature of SNL, where Michaels and his staff have been putting on a live hour of television each week for the past 40 years. Specifically, Simmons asked if that sort of schedule was too difficult, if there would be a benefit to cutting back.

Self-publishing reaches the summit
Digital Book World
New Generation Publishing's annual Self-Publishing Summit in London, now in its third year, is always a good opportunity to stop and consider how the self-publishing sector has evolved. There is no doubt that self-publishing, often derided in its former forms, has made a huge mark in the last three years and has not only developed rapidly in that time but is here to stay.

Hydroponics go beyond weed for these indoor home gardens
Digital Trends
A fair portion of the country is covered in snow, and the idea of harvesting fresh-from-the-garden vegetables is but a shadow of a unicorn's dream. Grove Labs wants to make that dream a year-round reality with its hydroponic garden. If the term "“hydroponic" brings to mind grow lights and Mary Louise Parker, it's because the soil-free system is often used to grow weed. "We owe a lot of the knowledge base to the marijuana growing industry,"” Grove creator Gabe Blanchet tells The Verge.

Apple $450 million e-book settlement gets final court approval
Reuters
A U.S. judge gave final approval to Apple Inc's agreement to pay $450 million to resolve claims it harmed consumers by conspiring with five publishers to raise e-book prices. During a hearing in Manhattan, U.S. District Judge Denise Cote approved what she called a "highly unusual" accord. It calls for Apple to pay $400 million to as many as 23 million consumers if the company is unsuccessful in appealing a ruling that found it liable for antitrust violations.

'The Art of the Heirloom' displays seed-package designs
The New York Times
A seed should be fecund, no apologies. Yet certain vegetables may advertise their potency a little too insistently. That is, anatomically. OK, pornographically. Ten years ago, Ken Greene founded the Hudson Valley Seed Library in Accord, N.Y., to disseminate the kind of heirlooms that once abounded on nearby farms. Not modern hybrids and genetic dead-enders.
