Topics: HTML, online, pdf, technology, android, app, Blog, Comment, creative, design, digital, digital publishing, ebook, editing, future, interactive, invention, ios, ipad, journal, magazine, media, newspaper, page lizard, publications, publishing, tablets
Facebook have scheduled the launch of their own breaking news app, Notify - stepping up to the challenge from Apple News.
A report from the FT suggested that the app could be made available this week, and will feature content from 'a range of print, digital and video companies'.
Yesterday evening, a group of some of the most influential people in UK publishing braved the temperamental British weather to discuss the publishing industry with Bo Sacks; a publishing and media guru from America.
Bo Sacks has been in publishing since 1970, and lays claim to authoring the longest-running e-newsletter in the world: "Heard on the Web: Media Intelligence". This daily newsletter covers the good, bad and ugly news about the industry, with detailed commentary on statistics and insightful opinion pieces from around the publishing world.
Digiday have recently launched TLDR: a nifty way of condensing longer content into bite-sized chunks. Is this a sensible response to changing reading habits, or a symptom of a growing inability to consume longer content?
