Mantra for the day

“We need to un-disrupt the industry that we love.”

This from Andy Hunter, CEO of Bookshop, in the Authors Guild Summer 2021 bulletin which we’ve just gotten around to reading. It helps provide a handy reply to those who upon learning of EDITH have made some remark about the popular temptations of trying to “disrupt” industries. (Granted, only a handful of people have done this.) Because it’s true: preserving and salvaging, even restoring, is so much more interesting.

P.S. Here’s the delightful Eva Talmadge’s interview with Hunter in the Journal of Beautiful Business.
