Tools of Change 2013

O'Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing 2013
Tizra is thrilled to once again be exhibiting at the Tools of Change for Publishers Conference, February 12-14, 2013.  Please visit us at booth TT 7. Also, feel free to take advantage of our exhibitor discount, by registering with this Discount Code: TIZRA25.

ToC has always been a great event for Tizra. We were there the first time the event was held in 2007.  And just a couple of months ago, we were recognized by conference chair Joe Wikert as a tool that empowers publishers to reach readers directly.

We love being surrounded by incredibly smart people who share our passion for the world of digital publishing. And what a world it's become!

The population of e-book readers is growing. In the past year, the number of those who read e-books increased from 16% to 23%. And this move toward e-book reading coincides with an increase in ownership of tablets and other electronic book reading devices, growing from 18% to 33%. Digital publishing is branching out, with companies like The New York Times, USA Today, TIME Inc, the Washington Post, Vanity Fair -- among others -- publishing their own ebook content. What better time to connect and see each other through all this amazing change?

If you won't be able to make the ToC conference this year, you can always follow our twitter feed at twitter.com/tizra as we'll be tweeting from floor.

Here's to connecting soon and cheers to another great year at Tools of Change!

AppGap: Tizra more than just a "great tool for content sellers"

Bill Ives has been writing about knowledge management since the days when for most people that meant color coding your files, so we were really pleased when he agreed to evaluate Tizra Publisher in The AppGap , a blog on the future of work. We were even more pleased when he said "I see this service as a great tool for content sellers." But we thought his keenest insight was into applications beyond traditional publishing... [Tizra Publisher] can also be a useful content distribution system for enterprises that need to manage the presentation of their information. This will be especially useful for verticals with a lot of internal content such as legal firms, pharma, and other research oriented enterprises. Ives saw Tizra's combination of easy and yet precisely controlled content distribution as key for these users, and others needing to share marketing and technical information. Read the full review .

Keeping Local Talent Local

Rhode Island's small, but it's got talent. I'd put the community of designers and software engineers surrounding Brown and RISD up against any I've worked with in New York or Boston. Yet technology startups haven't flourished here as you might expect, and much of Rhode Island's talent gets lured to the brighter lights of bigger cities. Yesterday, we got more evidence that the state is working to correct that when the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation approved our application for a $100,000 Innovation Tax Credit .  The credit will provide one more reason for investors to bet their capital on Tizra, and will mean Tizra can put more of those great engineers and designers to work close to home.
