Q&A: Shilen Patel on ‘Festival Annual’ and social media

Shilen Patel on 'Festival Annual' and social mediaShilen Patel is founder of Independents United, a London-based firm that has just published ‘Festival Annual’. 

Shilen says this is “the world’s first user-generated book” so I thought I’d interview him to find out more about it, and how social media sites like MySpace, Facebook and Twitter are being used to coordinate and promote the project.
