ASIDIC Spring Meeting

Asidic_1I had the privilege of speaking at the 2007 Spring ASIDIC meeting earlier this week.  My only regret is not being able to stay longer than the half-day I was able to attend.  I saw a couple of sessions after my own and was very impressed with the speakers and the presentation content.

Mike Buschman of Microsoft helped provide a better glimpse into Microsoft's Live Search for books and got me thinking about ways we might be able to tap into it.  I was also intrigued by what Joy Moore of Nature Publishing had to say about their focus on community and leveraging it for her journals business.  And while everyone did a fine job, Josh Hallett of Hyku really stole the show.  He's a bright, energetic speaker with loads of hands-on experience in the media world.  You'll also want to check out his blog.

If you're looking for a conference with an interesting mix of content/publishing people you owe it to yourself to consider future ASIDIC meetings.  Thanks to John Blossom of Shore Communications for inviting me to speak at this -- it was well worthwhile!

Joe, thanks for the compliment. I enjoy speaking, and it's always great to see the audience respond to things.
