Authonomy will be expanded globally and will seek to develop the type of social networking framework that has been the hallmark of myspace, bebo, facebook and others. That type of success is hard to bottle so it remains to be seen whether Harpercollins can create the same type of social interest around writing and authorship. Users of the site will be encouraged to upload their own writings, comment on others and generally support the efforts of their fellow Authonomists.
As talent is spotted, Harpercollins will consider the works for general publication. No guarantees of course. Thus far, the launch hasn't really generated too much excitement.
