Publish.com and PDFzone.com are now part of Ziff Davis Medias family of online publications. You may have noticed some changes today—and youre bound to see more in the coming weeks. We hope youll find that the changes are for the better.
As a company thats in the business of print and Web publishing, we here at Ziff Davis know as well as anyone how much the face of the publishing world has changed since Publishs beginnings as a desktop publishing magazine. Ive personally been involved in publishing for over 20 years—from pasting up mechanicals from thermal typesetter "slicks" (and later from Apple Laser printer output) to managing multiple Web sites. So were proud to have taken on stewardship of the Publish brand.
Andreas Pfeiffer (of The Pfeiffer Report) is helping to steer our relaunch of Publish.com. He kicks things off for us with a look at how digital imaging is creating a storage crisisfor creative organizations. And over on PDFzone.com, Don Fluckinger continues to lead the show with his coverage of the latest developments in the electronic document market.
Weve got big plans for both Publish.com and PDFzone.com. Well be working to deliver more how-tos, product reviews, case studies and other resources that will help you pick the right tools and sharpen your skills—whether youre laying out a print publication, programming website features, creating the perfect images, or producing streaming media. Well also keep you informed on what companies like Adobe, Macromedia, Quark, and other players in the content creation and management market are doing, so you can plan for the future.
I'm especially looking forward to helping shape the future of this site. And Im also hoping that well be getting some help in that effort from you. Let us know what you think of the new site—what you miss, what youd change, what you want more of. Well do our best to deliver it.
Lets get the content rolling!
