There is a question you have answered several times a day, at least since your teens.
It's the question you hear from everyone you meet, from all of nature.
It's the question you ask yourself when you look in the mirror, or look down from a tall building.
It's the question you'll ask yourself in the moment before you die.
Your answer to this single question, so common you've probably never even noticed it, shapes everything about you, and determines your success.
It is the most important minute of your life, and it is the doorway to your future.

Sitting at the crossroads of the physical and digital worlds, Barnes & Noble is in a unique position to be able to see how consumers are weaving together collections of on-line and off-line content, and how different types of content can influence each other. In this session, we will explore how the subconscious blurring of the boundaries between different content types is changing the way we think of apps and their discovery. We covers how these trends impact Barnes & Noble's construction of carefully curated store fronts with better app definition, selection and integration. The routes to achieving this are multiple, but Barnes & Noble's experience suggests that a more curated app store leads to fewer problems with discovery, and better revenues for developers.
