Nanotechnology is the topic of TechConnect Magazine's first digital issue
(Nanowerk News) The Arizona Technology Council today announced the first digital edition of its TechConnect magazine to complement the highly popular print offering. By combining rich media within a digital publication that maintains the look and feel of the print magazine, the Council is providing readers with faster access to articles exploring the emerging trends and issues in Arizona’s high-tech community.
“By using a scalable technology platform that replicates exact copies of the magazine for electronic distribution and searching, we are expanding our readership and raising the visibility of our sponsors and advertisers both locally and internationally,” said Steven G. Zylstra, president and CEO of the Arizona Technology Council and publisher, TechConnect. “The digital edition of TechConnect presents another opportunity for Arizona's technology community to showcase its work and innovations.”
Requiring no special software or “plug-in” downloads, the digital version ensures that every TechConnect reader has access to a full featured edition with the same departments, features and vibrant look they have come to expect. In fact, digital readers will have the experience of turning the pages of a regular magazine with the added convenience of availability anywhere they have an internet connection.
The focus of the premiere issue is nanotechnology, giving readers a glimpse into a field that produces innovations three orders of magnitude smaller than a human hair with enormous potential impact on the state’s economy. The issue will preview new products that incorporate the use of nanotechnology and provide insight into the issues surrounding its use.
