Talking about Tech
With the ever-increasing pervasiveness of technology in the publishing industry, editors must keep up with new hardware and software to stay competitive.
In this "digital potluck" discussion (an encore of our recent South Bay forum), we will look at our writing and editing tools; software to perform more rudimentary tasks; computer gear to optimize our workflow; blogs, blasts, and social media; and other geeky but essential tech aspects with which every editor should be familiar.
ACTION REQUEST: If you've used a handy program or helpful online tech resource, bring along your laptop or the URL, so you can share a short (5-10 min?) informal, low-pressure review or demo with us.
IMPORTANT: If you have a "digital potluck" contribution, please shoot a brief note to guest moderator David Couzens at DavidCouzens@outlook.com before the meeting (no exceptions) to let him know what you'd like to share, so he can add you to the list and keep our discussion flow organized.
We can expect to walk away with some new tools and ideas, plus the always-helpful perspectives shared among fellow members.
Hope to see you there!
