Speaking at PANPA on the Gold Coast this week

PANPA08I am speaking (twice!) at the PANPA Conference (Pacific Area Newspaper Publishers Association) this Wednesday (10th). I'll be demoing Deepzoom and Photosynth and talking about adding depth to web content. Here's the blurb:

Taking away the toilet roll - new dimensions for newspapers on the Net

Portable, customisable, familiar, navigable, sharable. Newspapers in the real world have a lot going for them!

Now take newspapers online. It’s like reading your paper though a toilet roll tube.

In this session we’ll demonstrate new technologies that allow you to move beyond left/right back/forwards and add new dimensions to the online newspaper experience. Learn how to leverage your existing assets and deliver results through more compelling, more sticky experiences for online readers.

Shane Morris, User Experience Evangelist with Microsoft Australia, will demonstrate emerging online technologies like Silverlight, Deepzoom and Photosynth, and how they can be used to allow readers to reach out and touch your content through the Internet.
