As late as five years ago, it seemed the New York publishers were determined to operate as they had in the 1980's, although the rest of the world was moving past them in leaps and bounds.
It's no secret that eBooks are part of the equation that is forcing the publishing industry into the future.

Or if you are a self-published author, why did you choose not to go with a traditional publisher?
