Over the last year, Microsoft has really engaged with the STM publishing community and has been maintaining a steady dialog on how they can help publishers start to use OOML and the OpenXML (DOCX) format.
I had the honor of moderating a seminar session at the SSP Annual Meeting on May 28th entitled, “The View from the New Office: Opportunities and Issues Incorporating Office 2007 Into Scholarly Publishing.” Here are my observations from “Nascent: Nature’s Blog on Web Technology and Science.”
On another note, it may not be as cool as SSP, but the Web 2.0 Expo often brings along some mind-blowing thinkers and cool new software and services. I went to this event on the West Coast in ’07, and it was well worth the trip. Now that it’s a local event for East Coast publishers, how can you pass it up? Sign up here early.
1 Thought on "Office 2007 and Web 2.0 Expo"
With the new Office (the 2007) design, look & feel, Microsoft have made a giant leap. True that it takes time to get use to the new ribbon and to get around quickly.. But once you are familiar with it, you rock!
We do a lot of researches on the web, and using Excel macros,
we have improved our research speed in 30%. That huge!!
Using OneNote have improved our research information control (nothing get lost now) and with the sharing files abilities, now everyone can contribute to the project.
So to summary it all, we are more then happy with the tools that comes in the Office 2007.
We looking forward to the new one… 😉
With the SP2 support for open source files,
our CRM improved since we don’t have to “fight”
with our clients anymore 🙂
The 2007 was a great investment with benefits to us.
