Issuu finds a way to evolve the publishing world

Some industries have been struggling lately. The publishing industry is an example (CosmoGirl closing, and The Christian Science Monitor stopping daily newspaper). A new innovative website looks to change some of these things in the industry, and FoxBusiness took a look. Issuu.com is an online publishing service that was created to solve the problems associated with online publishing. Anyone can publish an article in the format equivalent to a printed publication. Companies have begun to see the value, as MTV Networks, Guardian Books, and The Bantam Dell division of Random House have started publishing with Issuu.com.

What do you think a website liket this can do for an industry? It's publishing articles and documents for free, both for major corporations and the common people. It's already shown a great amount of success. Is this what's next for publishing?
