What is new with Interactive Publishing?

5. Sep 2006
Let me point you to a conference that promises to be a very interesting compilation of many digital trends. PIC NIC will take place from Sep. 27 to 29 in Amsterdam. Monique van Dusseldorp who has been active as an organizer of many events, also here at Interactive Publishing, has been involved and from what I can make out, the mix of speakers includes the very early to the very timely of actors on this stage. It should be possible to get a glimpse of the early fun. Check it out!

Cauthorn, Riefler, von Dusseldorp
Interactive Publishing Conference veterans Bob Cauthorn (now engaged in Citytools), Monique van Dusseldorp (for ever organzing internet events) and Katja Riefler (very busy with mandates within the German newspaper industry) wondered aloud, if it were not the time, to re-animate the Interactive Publishing Conference. We would love to get the next wave of newspaper metamorphosis going. Let us know, if you'd be interested as well...

They said advertisers needed better lobbying
IP Masters participants Patino (Le Monde) and von Blumencron (Spiegel) were named president and vicepresident of OPA Europe (Online Publishers Association Europe).
They echo a key finding of the IP Zurich Report that it is very important to provide advertisiers with better tools to make a decision to put their money online - and to seek international cooperation. Congrats to the move, IP Masters players!

Michel Colonna D'Istria passed away
Belatedly the news reached us that in August Michel Colonna D'Istria who was on the Interactive Publishing board of advisers drowned during his vacations in Banuyls, at just 44. He leaves his wife and three children. During his two speaker appearances at the conference, Michel exhibited his charm with engaging, lively and enthusiastic talks. A true pioneer of the online news industry in France, he led the interactive efforts of both La Libération as well as Le Monde. Michel offered his help and advice with no restraints and he had been a very supporting force for us since 1994. I am grateful to have criss-crossed paths with this lovely man and très, très triste to never have the chance to do so again...

Interactive Publishing Conference Leap Year
Norbert Specker and Bettina Tamo of Interactive Publishing have talked to many online publishers and content producers in the last weeks. The analysis was straightforward: our key clientele is under enormous pressure . The chances to do the usual ambitious conference this year without substantially losing money are remote. We consequently decided that the conference Interactive Publishing will not take place this winter as well as Content Summit. Call it a leap year.

IP Zurich Report: From interactive publishers for interactive publishers

But we feel there is a need and an obligation to reaffirm and reevaluate some of our core believes. We will use this leap year to produce the best industry assessment and provide the best integration strategy paper possible.

Our extended board of advisers will meet in Zurich on January 16/17, 2003. With the help of our unique assessment tool Nextexpertizer we will capture, aggregate and visualize the group genius of the key exponents in this market.

The IP Zurich Report will offer answers to the question:
"What are the key strategic directions of the interactive/integrated publishing industry and what are the immediate and middle term steps to implementation".

The people who will offer these answers as one voice are invited because they are very special movers in this industry. Everybody has an extensive past and presence with the responsibility to make digital channels work, either as an integrated or a stand alone venture. They all enjoy an industry wide respect that is based on high visibility with mostly sound strategic decisions in important media houses over many years. Experience, integrity and curiosity is what unites them.

If you want to make sure that we notify you as soon as the report is available please get on the infolist.

World Cup 2002 in perspective
The World Cup and its online coverage will be an interesting topic at the next Interactive Publishing conference. It has been the biggest online event so far.

Pulitzer for Wall Street Journal
Those who were present at the roundtable covering the events of September 11 from the online news perspective will remember the memorable account by Rich Jaroslovsky, senior editor and former managing editor of Wall Street Journal online. On his way to the office he was stopped because he just missed the last ferry to Manhattan. The newsroom is just across the WTC and was completely destroyed during the morning. Under the spell of the tragedy for a while it looked as if the next day - for the first time in its history - would not see a printed Wall Street Journal.
Then Rich and his colleagues pulled together and managed to produce a complete newspaper with most of the normal infrastructure missing. For this effort that Jaroslovsky described in detail at Interactive Publishing just weeks after the event, the Wall Street Journal just received the renowned Pulitzer award.

Screenshots visited by 1200 people a day; 4000 on March 11
The history part of Interactive Publishing is finding a growing audience. The September 11 Screenshots of 200 online news sites from around the world are visited by an average of 1200 people each day (February 2002) and they look at 10 pages each. On March 11 traffic surged to 4000 visitors and 40'000 page views. The site has been featured by hundreds of sites among them USA Today, The Guardian, Der Spiegel, La Repubblica, Wired and a host of weblogs, memorial and academic sites.

Content Summit: Quotes of the day
Day one, 7 November 2001
"Content alone is not king. Content plus interactivity is king. The secret is applications, not publication."
Bruce Annan, Bell Globe Media

"Don’t underestimate email marketing. It isn’t sexy, it’s not glamorous. But it’s effective—it lands in people’s mailbox first thing every morning."
Deirdre O’Callaghan, Bonnier Media

"Every type of content will be digitized, legally or illegally. The question is not whether we like that or not. It’s a fact. And if no competitive legal offer is made, then piracy will take over."
Gerd Leonhard, licencemusic.com

"I do think about cutting-edge technologies, but only on my own time. A lot of media companies have wasted a hell of a lot of money trying to be technology drivers, and quite often they ended up with blood on their faces."
Hugo Drayton, Hollinger Telegraph New Media

Subscription: Salon and Breakingviews
Two content sites that introduced a subscription based business model in the last 10 months were Salon, the online publishing pioneer based in San Francisco and Breakingviews, the UK based financial news service founded by former FT columnist Hugo Dixon. On Thursday morning, November 8, we will have Rob Cox, assistant editor and a founding member of the edtorial board of Breakingviews telling us the subscription story from England. He will be followed by an exclusive video interview that George Shirk, Eitor-in-Chief of Wired News conducts with Michael O'Donnell, CEO of Salon for Interactive Publishing. An exciting start to and exciting day!

With micro payments en route to macro pay outs
here has been a market for micro payment solutions as long as the internet went mainstream. At Interactive Publishing in 1995 Toby Chaum of Digicash presented what was at the time the real hot solution. Alas, those solutions never attained critical mass and we have not heard from Toby since. The recent change in perspective puts micro payment solutions in the spotlight again. At the German branch of AutoScout24 the first year of charging for additional classifieds features brought in almost 1 Mio. DM (ca. Euro 500K). That was using just one solution. The plans and the consumers call for additional payment options (by phone, by card). As before, the main hurdle is the non existing critical mass of consumers who have committed to any one system. (AutoScout24 Germany CEO Peter Schmid will share the system selection process, first year experience and strategic consequences on Nov. 9)

24. Oct 2001
Von Blumencron/Spiegel.de at Sep 11 Panel
We are happy to announce Matthias Mueller von Blumencron, the editor-in-chief of Spiegel Online to take part in the "Facts& Fiction: Media coverage in crisis time" Panel on November 8.
He will join Rich Jaroslovsky of the Wall Street Journal and Scott Meyer, General Manager of New York Times (nytimes.com). Additional key personal in the makes, stay tuned!

10. Oct 2001
Credibility and actuality
Rich Jaroslovsky's apperance doubly valuable
When we invited Rich Jaroslosvky earlier this year to talk about the credibility study conducted by the Online News Association due in October, we had no idea on how pressing the issue would become a few weeks later. In the wake of the September 11 attacks hoaxes and rumors mushroomed through the internet and ever faster found their way into the print and the broadcast world. We are glad that Rich will also join the panel "Facts & fiction: multimedia coverage in crisis time". As many of you will know the Wall Street Journal's offices were unusable after the attack and the paper as well as the website had to be prepared by staff wildly dispersed in the New York area. Until this summer Rich was the managing editor of the Wall Street Journal online. In combination with his stature as a senior editor and the high recognition he enjoys throughout the industry, his presence at Content Summit will be a great enrichment to an ambitious conference. A conference that recognizes the online media industry has done an outstanding job in the last weeks, The first true test revealed incredible strengths - and some avoidable mistakes. But above all it put a spotlight on key elements of successful content and we want to make sure the whole industry can learn from them.

4. Oct 2001
Screenshots: traffic surges
The searchable collection of screenshots compiled by Interactive Publishing in preparation for the Content Summit 01 generates unexpected interest. The pictures of online news sites during the September 11/12 period recorded in the last two weeks an average of 2'000 pageviews a day. Tuesday traffic surged to 4'500 pagviews and stood at 16'500 on Wednesday, October 3rd.

13. Sep 2001
Terrorist Attack Coverage: Topic at CS01
Online news industry's biggest test will be reflected in the updated programming of the content conference/8th Interactive Publishing.
Monitoring of the online activity over the critical days revealed weaknesses and strengths within the online content industry that we need to discuss. Please stay tuned for an update on when the session will be scheduled and who will participate. In the meantime check the screenshot collection of online news sites in the wake of the attack: "September".

Meet the profitable local newspaper site
How Bob Cauthorn makes SFgate.com shine
This short report appeared in our Content Newsletter Special Issue for Content Summit on Sep 4 (to receive the newsletter Get on the infolist):

It is August 14 on a sunny San Francisco day. Two weeks into a new building, the SFgate.com staff of 59 - for the first time - is sitting under one roof. The airy offices reflect ambitious plans. And so they should.
When Robert Cauthorn, Vice President for Digital Media took SFgate over middle of 2000, the company was losing very substantial money every week. By the end of this month, it will be profitable....and then some more.
When Hearst bought the Chronicle last year, part of the deal was: No lay-offs in the online department. So how is that for additional handicap? The turn-around was achieved without laying off one single person. And in the worst possible times since the start of the commercial internet.
SFgate found solid ground when the job classified section underwent major restructuring. "We just tried to best match the needs of job seekers and companies offering positions" says Deb Ward, who is the online classified manager, "the success mainly is due to a change of attitude".
The fact that the job market is just the first key element among a range of other planned redesigns, makes Robert Cauthorn very confident: "Newspaper have won! We have won!" he exclaims as he goes through the plans, additions and innovations. "We have to aspire to our local market, a market still largely untapped. Too much energy has been wasted to attract the big national advertisers - and too little thinking and care about 'Main Street', the local partners."Bob showed exciting new strategies with display ads that certainly will make a mark on the industry and his appearance on Nov. 7 will see the first update on how the concept is catching on - also hear first hand what practical steps Bob has taken to turn around this venture.

Another try at charging for content
Salon.com under the editorial direction of Dave Talbot (Dave spoke at IP in 1997) has been going through roughly 60 Mio $ since its launch in 1995. On the death watch list for a while, President and CEO Michael O'Donnell (scheduled to speak in Zurich on November 8, 2001) in a fifth financing round recently secured 2.5 Mio $. He is under strict directives to get the venture break even until the end of the year. When we talked to him on August 14 he outlined a strategy that is a combination of subscription and advertising revenue. So far 12'000 subscribers at an average 33$ have yielded to the seduction of added value and no ads. Projected advertising sales of +5 Mio. $ and some serious efforts in cost-cutting have Michael cautiously optimistic. As WIRED news editor-in-chief George Shirk later in the day states "I am sad that so few pure online quality publications are making it". By November we will have more telling results and the detailed account of the particular approach in the 'from free to fee' strategy that many content providers contemplate.
In the meantime you might want to get your hands on the Salon "Wanderlust"-book (another revenue stream Michael is pursuing) that features excellent travel writings. Among which Carlos Fuentes' account of his first visit to Zurich seems a perfect fit for your travel plans this fall...

Licencing and Packaging - Two Sides of Same Coin
Music has dominated the discussion in the peer-to-peer and copyright sphere. Music as Film is produced with a very complex and varied distribution chain in mind. A piece of music has many more than the proverbial "7 lives of content", as we dubbed the session on content recycling on Monday, Nov. 7. We want to know, what strategic conclusions online publishers and content providers can draw from the converging music and documentary industry. Meet Gerd Leonhard, CEO of LicenceMusic.com and Paul Duffon, CEO of Newsplayer Group. Both will offer unexpected angles to content packaging and selling strategies.

7. Aug 2001
The ISP Door
The big international ISPs like the "T-Trimuvirat" Terra, Tiscali,T-Online or Scandinavia Online and AOL to a large extend are dominating distribution (the key strategic advantage of newspapers in the analog world). The extensive customer relationships put them in a position to better figure out payment options for content. While their gatekeeper role has an influence on distribution options for content, the international scope offer them unprecedented experience in content localization. These and other topics will be at the center of out "THE ISP Door" session of Friday morning, November 9th. We are looking forard to having with us the VP Content for Terra Lycos, Rafael Bonnelly and Scandinavia CEO, Birger Steen.

Accidental Publishers
Gerry McGovern of NUA fame to aid "new publishers"

How to make money with subscription?
Anne Holland, CEO, ContentBiz
Big sites such as WSJ.com, eDiets, ConsumerReports.org, CinemaNow.com and Ancetry.com, as well as little entrepreneurial sites such as MRNews.com and FashionForRealWomen.com have proven it's very possible to sell subscriptions to news, video and databased content online. Anne Holland has been watching this space closely for many years and will offer a 2 hour "How-To" Mastersieries Workshop on Friday, Nov. 9. Her presenation of 20 minutes within the conference will take place on Thursday afternoon, Nov. 8

Content Summit site - fresh from the beauty parlour
A new start! Based on our ever niftier CMS system developed by Urs van Binsbergen and Dominic Meyer, we have reshuffled the site, added new section (such as the news) and are building an extensive insider part to further facilitate matchmaking among our attendees. Stephen England, who is also responsible for the site design of the Neue Zuercher Zeitung (NZZ) has wielded his magic.
