From the Editor: We Know You're Out There
As for me, I've been on the road quite a lot these last few months. In February, I visited Washington, D.C., to attend the Association of American Publishers' Professional & Scholarly Publishing meeting and learn about some of the crucial issues that are occupying the minds of journal publishers, including open access and peer review. In March I headed even further south to another hipster town, Austin, Texas, where I attended the Interactive portion of the annual South by Southwest festival. I sure put mileage on my boots rushing from session to session to cram all I could about responsive design, gated content, "ninja innovation" and more.
In the coming months, we'll continue our travels and our search for the exciting and the innovative, and we'll continue to bring you the information you need to master the rapid-fire change all around us. We're on the lookout for what's hip and, if you're doing it, we will find you!
P.S. I mentioned our new AR (augmented reality) feature above. Don't forget to download the Layar app and scan our pages for bonus content, such as a video message from Mr. Magazine (page 20) and chronicle of a visit to Rodale's new retail store (page 14). Instructions are below.
