Keeping Up with Accelerating Digital Change

Discover how to prepare for the digital future

In yesterday’s Mequoda Daily, I discussed how HTML5 would drastically change online media going forward. And honestly, I believe yesterday’s article was the first time many online publishers even considered HTML5 and the ramifications of not utilizing it in future website design.

Frankly, with all the changes that take place, I can easily understand how even the most successful, professional individuals can let valuable information slip past them.

And if you think the level of change experienced by the publishing industry in the past 10 – 15 years is a lot, you haven’t seen anything yet.

Attendees come to events like Mequoda Summits to talk about what’s next with the best and brightest, and how to prepare for it. New online business concepts and strategies are heard in keynotes, while actionable processes are taught in our hands-on workshops.

For a look at the Mequoda Summit East 2011, here’s a preview of the different program types.
