At the 2010 Tools of Change for Publishing conference in Frankfurt, we met Richard Padley of Semantico. He spoke at the conference about mobile platforms from the perspective of publishers faced with multiple delivery models including apps and the web.
We started off our interview with Richard Padley by asking:
What does the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement mean to you?
So, is it the end of paper?
Even if I tell you that 30% of IFRC’s membership don’t have e-mail?
Many people seem to think that PDF is a usable digital format for publications. So, what’s wrong with PDF?
Even though EPUB is the basis for eBooks, in 2010 few people are familiar with this format. What’s right with EPUB?
The Kindle is a single-purpose device. It does one thing, and is meant to it well enough to convince people who love printed books to cross the digital divide. The iPad is a multi-purpose tablet. So, Kindle or iPad?
We hear about mobile platforms. What’s that about?
