I haven’t been very good at blogging about this conference as it has been a busy Winter and early Spring. In any case, there is still time to join us, especially if you are in the Bay area. Registration is still open online as of this post, and is also available on site at the Palace hotel through Thursday. If you can only get away for one day, make it Wednesday for the keynote with Adobe, Google, IBM, Microsoft and Oracle. The technology showcase is also open on Wednesday (with a reception) and Thursday.
Managing Editor Inc. (MEI) announced a joint development with Clickability to integrate the SoftCare K4 Publishing System with Clickability’s cmPublish, an on-demand Web content-management system. With this integration, MEI and Clickability are offering a multi-channel publishing solution that helps newspapers and magazines streamline their Web and print workflows. Clickability’s cmPublish is a Web publishing platform used by corporate content sites and online newspaper and magazine publishers combining design, publishing, ad server, subscription, newsletter, analytic and administrative capabilities. The integration supports a seamless exchange of content between cmPublish and K4, the database-driven editorial workflow system integrated with Adobe InDesign and Adobe InCopy. K4 content with XML tags is automatically detected, parsed and uploaded to cmPublish, allowing simple or complex scheduling and easy repurposing of content for online or print usage. <a href=”http://www.maned.com”>http://www.maned.com</a>, <a href=”http://www.clickability.com”>http://www.clickability.com</a>
