The second challenge was a bit more interesting. Mike mentioned that producing their publications would be much more efficient if he, along with others who sometimes worked away from the office, could connect to the office network from remote locations. He went a little further than that. Not only did they want to connect to their servers, they wanted to be able to work from home or wherever exactly the same way they did back at the office.
I asked my new friend, Kevin Schwartz to coauthor a column about the trend of college newspapers toward reducing print days or moving away from print to digital. Kevin is going to hate that I told you this, but College Media Matters recently referred to Kevin as “Dean of the College Media Business.” He knows his stuff.
You can read for yourself what Kevin, who was general manager of The Daily Tar Heel student newspaper at the University of North Carolina for 20 years, thinks about this trend.
At first I thought, “It sounds like an interesting project, but I just don’t have time.”
But lately, I’ve been trying to stretch myself and keep work interesting. It dawned on me that my friend Ed Henninger might be interested in working on this project with me. Sure enough, he was.
Scenes for the movie “Nebraska” were filmed at the Osmond Republican.
I have a new friend on Facebook. I just “accepted” Roger’s friend request this morning. More about that later.
It seems to be on the minds of newspaper publishers and production managers everywhere.
Without a doubt, the second most requested task I’ve been given by newspapers in recent months is to improve the quality of the color in their print products.
Two statistics struck me as very interesting as I prepared for this summit.
Although it worked well, it wasn’t very long before Flash files became problematic, primarily due to Apple’s refusal to support them on iPads and iPhones. So even though I’d created several websites in InDesign, I quickly changed that practice.
Then came InDesign CS5.5 and CS6, which made it possible to export HTML5 directly from InDesign. Frankly, though, the process always seemed to work with less than perfect results, so I gave up on that idea.
When I subscribed to Adobe Creative Cloud a few months ago, I looked around the site for apps available through the normal subscription. Along with InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and other applications I used regularly, there was a name I hadn’t thought of in a while: Muse.
Well, now you know.
This wasn’t a greeting, as you might think. It was more along the lines of “You’re not kidding!”
It’s struck me as funny that, as I thought about the best way to explain the reaction to Adobe’s Creative Cloud announcement, the first words that came to mind were, “Boy, howdy.”
Is Syracuse a newspaper graveyard?
Is The Times-Picayune On It's Last Leg?
I'll bet you can guess the answers to these questions. And while we're at it, let's make those photos look better.

Is there a way to convert RGB to CMYK in a PDF file without having to open each pic individually in Photoshop?
"One who assumes financial responsibility for; guarantee against failure. To insure against losses."
“No,” was my immediate response.
“They’re saying the newspaper industry is dead. I thought you’d want to know.”
Here are even more new tools in Create Suite 6.
OK, here it is, in no particular order. My favorite new features in Adobe Creative Suite 6. We’ll stick with the applications most used by those of us in the trenches.
With new versions of InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and more, newspaper designers and publishers are asking, “Is it time to upgrade?”
Now it's time to read what Kevin has to say.
That’s right. On July 2, two days before my country’s Independence celebration, my five year old iMac began to crawl.
Here's what happened next ...
In New York, I received spontaneous applause when I told the audience to “quit running their newspapers as if all their business is coming from mobile” when most of their profits are coming from print.
Let’s start with a text from Tammy in Minnesota
Kevin, we need your help!
