Margaret Atwood gave a speech at the O'Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing Conference (TOC) 2011. Her perspective on publishing vis-a-vis the internet and other new tools is interesting; wish I could've been there to listen to this live. Anyway, here's a video of her presentation:

The pie—the author and work, and the packaging and sale of the latter—has been divided up in various ways through the years, with bigger and smaller pieces for accordingly. We are now in the midst of the largest publishing changes and challenges since Gutenberg. How will they affect the author? What tools are newly available to him/her? One author’s view, illustrated with her own drawings. (via)
