  • Branded Content: We're All Publishers Now

    by Shane Snow, Amy Vernon, Lindsey Weber, Audrey Gray, Emily Miethner and AudreyGray

    The Internet has made everyone a publisher. Even brands are now doing what used to solely be the domain of media companies: creating compelling content. Great content is being used to gain fans, inform customers and increase exposure on the Internet. This panel will discuss the principles of successful viral content - whether articles, infographics or videos and how companies can apply these to branded content. And we're talking about more than just slapping your logo on a pie chart. We'll discuss how to get started, measure results and set goals, as well as the importance of a consistent strategy. You've heard the phrase "content is king" over and over again; this panel will show how and why.

  • Making eBooks Smarter: Responsive Page Design

    by Peter Meyers

    Some ebooks are print edition replicas, some are overstuffed mediafests. Neither fulfill one of screen publishing’s biggest promises: adapting content to meet readers’ needs. The digital page can do much more than its “dumb” static counterpart. Possibilities range from memory-coaxing character summaries embedded “beneath” the digital canvas to continuously streamed in updates. Join author Pete Meyers (“Breaking the Page”, O’Reilly) for a lively group chat. He’ll kick off with a fast-paced tour of digital document design principles and best practices. From there he’ll help attendees compare modern readers’ most pressing needs to the kinds of just-in-time services digital books can deliver. Together we’ll swipe away the notion that digital book design is just about picking fonts or adding video. It’s about shaping content on an infinite canvas so that ebook readers become ebook lovers.
