Keeping up with all the publishing industry news is a daunting task these days. Earlier this year I joined Kat Meyer as one of the chairs for our Tools of Change (TOC) conference and since then I've invested a lot of time each day staying on top of all the latest developments. But there are so many news feeds, blog posts, tweets, etc., that it's impossible to catch everything. That's why the TOC team is working together to help you find the best of the best and providing the results it in a free newsletter.
Throughout the week we gather the most important items, review them as a team, vote on the best and then summarize them in the TOC newsletter. If you haven't subscribed yet you need to do so right now. Simply head over to this page, enter your email address and click "Submit."
If you've missed the last couple of TOC newsletters all is not lost. You can still read the most recent one here and the one before that here. Check out both of those and I think you'll agree that the TOC newsletter is simply the best source of industry news and commentary available. Check it out and tell me what you think of it. You can always reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. -- Over the past several months my coleagues and I have worked hard to build TOC into something much more significant than a once- or twice-a-year in-person event. We now feature a steady stream of webcasts, video podcasts, short form content and much more. In short, it's a year-round engagement opportunity we're offering the publishing community. If you want to see what's coming up in TOC-land, head over to oreilly.com/toc. If you're looking to register for the next NY event you can still go to toccon.com. Be sure to register soon though as we're trending well ahead of last year's rate and are quickly heading towards an even earlier sell-out for 2012.
