Agile Publishing Model.

Futurist David Houle

Welcome to the future!  The future of humanity and the future of publishing.

I am very excited about my new book Entering the Shift Age and the new model of publishing Sourcebooks has created, the Agile Publishing Model (APM). The APM is an innovative platform that allows authors to make their content available faster and in a more flexible format. For example, to suit your needs and interests as readers, Sourcebooks offers a variety of ways to purchase the content of Entering the Shift Age, either in individual parts (“mini eBooks”) or as a whole. (Check out “How to Purchase: The Agile Way”.) You can learn more about the APM by watching the video below.

This is part of the future of publishing. Now let’s turn toward our own future, the future of humanity.

We now live in the Shift Age, a time of transformation that will be regarded by future historians as one of the most significant periods in human history. The Shift Age is one of those inflection points or times when much of humanity will change how we live, how we think, how we interact with each other and what we do.


We are continuing with the development of my latest book Entering the Shift Age and I wanted to thank everyone who has participated in the Agile Publishing Model through your review and comments.

We posted Part Two of the book several weeks ago and are preparing to close the review and comments for this new content on July 13, 2012.

If you haven’t already done so, I would invite you to take a moment to review the content and leave me your comments before that date.

I hope you had a great holiday weekend, and thanks again for your participation in the Agile Publishing of Entering the Shift Age.  I look forward to your comments.

— David

Update: The content review period has ended and is no longer available for review.

About Entering the Shift Age

Entering the Shift Age by David Houle

Change is everywhere: in how we communicate, what we do for a living, the values we hold, the way we raise our children, even the way we access information. Thanks to a global economy, the force of the Internet, and the explosion of mobile technology, we have—almost imperceptibly—entered into a new era, the Shift Age, in which change happens so quickly that it’s become the norm. We’re undergoing a major collapse of legacy thinking that is eroding many of the thought structures that defined the last 200 years. What are some of the new forces that will shape our lives in the next 20 years?

  • Remote workplaces
  • The cloud
  • 24/7 culture
  • Speed-of-light connectivity
  • The influence of Millennials and Digital Natives
  • And more!


There is no going back to the way things were before. Reality is changing fast, and Entering the Shift Age is your guide to keeping up.
