Generally Speaking

Sad news of the passing of two well known identities, in Victoria all breeds judge Mr Ken Pierce who was awarded Life Membership of the VCA, and in NSW, Peter Mortimer, well known for his years of dedication to the Tibetan Terrier and also for his printing company Words N Pixels which although ownership changed a few years back still continues to produce catalogues and year books for so many clubs. Our condolences to the families of both these well respected gentlemen.

On a cheerful note, Geoff Corish reports from England that the famous WELKS show this year the show coincided with the Royal Wedding, and the club had television screens situated at various parts of the showground so that no-one would miss this special day. The front of the catalogues also included an illustration of a pair of gold wedding rings along with Kate and William's initials – surely only in the UK could a dog show-giving committee think to do such a great thing. Puts things into perspective, don't you think?

Some interesting statistics for us as pioneer eEdition publishers, “tablets are promising to breathe new life into the publishing industry, with over 1 million tablet devices estimated to be sold in Australia in 2011. Over 80 per cent of consumers expect to read magazines on tablet devices. For news, it's over 70 percent of consumers, according to Boston Consulting Group research conducted last year. We are at the beginning of a revolution in publishing - but what will the future look like?
