Code Meet Print NY (http://codemeetprint.com/) continues our exploration of innovation around Texts + Tech with demos + dialogue at Version 4.0: "Content + Conversation" Presented by General Assembly - with a fantastic lineup:
Findings (https://findings.com/) - Co-Founder Corey Menscher presents the Betaworks (http://betaworks.com/) company that lets you store, share, and search snippets of text from eBooks and web pages, including integration with Kindle highlights (more options on the way). Findings gives you the ability to share those quotes and follow other peoples quotes through your timeline. Urtak (https://urtak.com/) - Co-Founder Marc Lizoain and recent TechStars NYC grad (http://techcrunch.com/2011/10/19/techcrunch-roundup-12-startups-500-investors-at-techstars-nyc-demo-day/) presents the powerful question and answer tool (used by Andrew Sullivan/The Daily Beast (http://andrewsullivan.thedailybeast.com/2011/10/the-nevada-debate-reader-reax.html)) that creates more engaged, measurable responses to content across internet media (over 100x more than Comments). Anyone can answer or create an Urtak of their own. MAZ (http://magappzine.com/) - Co-Founder Paul Canetti demonstrates MagAppZine, the digital publishing platform that allows magazine publishers to create and manage iPad Newsstand apps easily and affordably without a developer, including a toolset for video, audio, and web content. MAZ is deployed with 100s of publishers with readers in over 75 countries. Projeqt (http://projeqt.com/) - Co-Founder and Executive Creative Director at TWBA David Lee demonstrates the cloud-based storytelling platform that allows you to create dynamic, artful stories: presentations, reports, portfolios, and websites. This device-agnostic HTML5 platform lets you pull live tweets, audio, video, and other rich media. Plus a Group Talkback/Q+A featuring the distinguished Presenters above!
