This blog is back up and running after a lengthy hiatus due to this site being hacked while writing a new book. Before I jump into new material, here’s a rundown of what’s new.
– My new book, iPad Kickstart, is completed and off to McGraw-Hill for page layout and printing. The book will be released in early August and covers the key features of the third-generation iPad and introduces you to a bevy of new apps to make your life more organized, more entertaining and less stressful.
– Kevin Kelly rocked my world (again) with his presentation on 6 Words for the Modern Internet. If you’re involved in content creation, publishing or just curious about where this crazy trip is headed, you owe it to yourself to check it out.
– New Software Releases: Adobe Creative Suite 6 is jam-packed with new goodness to boost your creativity, help you work faster and publish your content everywhere. This summer, I’ll be spending time highlighting the best new features for agile photographers and help you orient your workflow toward multi-channel publishing. Also in the category of new software releases, Autodesk released a pre-release extended trial version of Autodesk Smoke 2013 for Mac. I have to admit, I’m quite curious about having an editor, VFX and finishing package all wrapped into one application. I’m downloading the trial right now and look forward to giving it a try.
It feels good to be back up and running again and I’m looking forward to sharing accumulated ideas, insights tips and tricks with you over the coming weeks.
