At this year's event, the 1,000 or so participants will sit in on lectures and panel discussions on everything from the gamification of children's books to metadata to an issue New Tech City examined last week, the role of libraries

In this week's episode, host Manoush Zomorodi talks to former Apple evangelist Guy Kawasaki.  He's published 10 books through publishing houses and two books.

His most recent work is APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur, a guide to self-publishing, which also happens to have its own website.
