[MCN-L] A new approach to mobile, with e-books and geolocation

2012-12-11 Thread Greg Albers
On the Beyond the Printed Page digital publishing blog, I've written a
new post that I thought would be of interest to many of you: You Are
Here: The Exciting Possibilities of Geolocation in E-Books

The post explores the idea of creating an e-book that can respond to
its reader's environment and be navigated in real space. For it, I
created a test e-book guide for a few works at the IMA's 100 Acres
sculpture park. The book is in the epub format (an open specification
and the industry's dominant reflowable e-book format) that uses some
simple javascript and the html5 geolocation api to determine a
reader's position and then direct them to specific information for
that location, in real time.

And for those interested in digital publishing in general and not
already following Beyond the Printed Page (or the Bliki as we call it,
http://digitalpublishingbliki.com) I hope you will. It was started by
Liz Neely and Amy Weber-Parkolap at the AIC, and though still in its
infancy, is already full of some great ideas and resources, with much
more to come!

[MCN-L] online registration software

2012-12-11 Thread Adrienne Romano
Dear Colleagues,

Please excuse cross postings.

We are looking to update our online registration system that processes our 
children's classes, adult programs, events, etc. Can anyone recommend a 
software that you have had success with? We would also like this system to 
process payments online as well.

Thank you in advance for the information!
