Crafting Tablet Magazines
Paul Canetti, Founder and CEO, MAZ
Wednesday, July 11th from 6:00 - 7:30 pm
Like the other media industries before it (music, movies, TV, books...), magazines are being transformed by the Internet and other new technologies like tablet computing. But are digital magazines just backlit versions of the original print? How should a digital magazine be different than a print magazine? How can publishers produce both physical and digital media in today's economic conditions? This class will go through the history of tablet-based magazines, discuss who the major players are, critique examples of existing tablet magazines, and explore the various options available to magazine publishers as they enter the tablet age.
Paul Canetti is the founder and CEO of MAZ, a digital publishing platform with a focus on transitioning the print world to tablet and mobile devices.
Having previously worked in both technology and publishing at Apple, Condé Nast, and as the Creative Director of a boutique web/app development agency, Canetti truly understands the increasingly important intersection of content, design and technology.
