iProstest?????

What an easy way for someone to say, "I didn't write that," by deleting from their system. Would they all be connected into some great collector which would produce more information for their "permanent record?" Oh what fun it would be to read transcripts upon the next scandal, when the iPad user says he/she didn't realize that the collected information was saved even after deleted.

Best,

Diane

The right approach is the one that works for the individual and delivers results. It is important in publishing that we deliver users/recipients/customers content in the way that provides the individual what s/he needs.

Frankly (no pun intended) it is not unusal for me to have the same content in print, digital and even audio form.

On a personal note... it is a cost cutting folly to "do away with printed material" by spending a bunch of money on technology. The end result may well end up being more documents getting printed locally at a higher cost per page. But then that probably doesn't hit his budget line item. (she says in a sarcastic tone)
