Adobe and Digital Publishing

(cross-posted from http://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2010/01/adobe_and_digital_publishing.html)

The “Future of Publishing” is the new hot-topic, with media focusing on the devices that will deliver digital newspapers, magazines and books.
Well hardware is nothing without software and – as you’d expect, with
over 25 years partnering with the print publishing industry – Adobe
technology is powering this transition, as new digital formats and new
reading patterns emerge.

This spring, expect to see Adobe out and about, showing some of our
latest tools and technologies – developed by ourselves and in
collaboration with publishers. We think you’ll love what we have to
demo, so check us out if you’re coming to the events below:
