Adler is featured as part of Forbes’ “Media” category for saying “he thinks readers ought to be able to indulge their own diverse curiosities as well – and be able to ‘think about what to read, not what to buy.’” He was also chosen for a photo shoot, “15 Standouts,” along with Evan Speigel and Bobby Murphy of Snapchat (Tech), Bruno Mars (Music) and Shaziza Shalid, co-founder of the Malala Fund (Social). You can now find the full Forbes interview with Adler on Scribd’s evolution and future here.

The whole team at Scribd is incredibly excited! Looks like 2014 is off to a pretty great start.

  2. i thought it was particularly interesting to find out this young man has been doubling the size of Scribd for several years now, and seems to have a nice feel for where ebooks & reading are headed

    more features like this would be nice – updates, new info, curious details ;-)

  5. Hello, would you mind telling me how to post blogs on this website? Many thanks!

  6. I’m a public librarian, so you may imagine how conflicted I feel about the concept of Scribd. Libraries provide way more than books, but the existence of this new business model may have a big impact on the way we do business, as well. We’ve been aware of the ways publishing and reading are changing for a long time, of course, so it only makes sense to check out your services and see in what ways we can happily co-exist. I’d like to think of it as a reading co-op rather than a full-on competition. It’s definitely an interesting time!

    • Hi Lisa, I’m Carrie, community manager here at Scribd. Happy that you found us! I’ve been talking with lots of librarians lately and I look forward to happily co-existing and working together. On a personal level, I love libraries and come from a family of teachers and librarians. I spend hours in my local library branch and I’m always checking books out, even though I discover lots of authors and books on Scribd as well.

      I’d love to hear what you think about Scribd and how you think we may be able to work together. Can you email me at carrie(at)scribd(dot)com?
