The Next Generation of Guidebooks

Yesterday I went to the grand opening of an art gallery in Madrid. It's not a new gallery, but it's moved from the outskirts of town to the center. I'll be putting my review online as part of the quarterly update of Night & Day Madrid by Pulse Guides. It will be online within two weeks, making us probably the first guidebook to mention it.

This is how guidebooks need to be in the future. When there's a major new site, it should be on the publisher's site within a matter of weeks, instead of waiting a year or two for a new print edition. It's amazing how many publishers haven't figured that out yet.

I discussed the changes in the guidebook industry at length in an earlier post. Now I'm getting to be part of them.
