I was invited to give the keynote at the 2nd International Society of Managing and Technical Editors (ISMTE) Annual Conference. I delivered the talk Tuesday morning, August 4th (I slip in the podcast and say it’s Monday, but it was really Tuesday).

In the lunch line after some morning break-out sessions, I spoke with Jason Roberts, the founder of the organization. I conducted the interview on my iPhone, showing once again how easy it can be to generate good audio with the right technology and a good interview subject.

The ISMTE is a growing organization with an interesting, engaged, and savvy membership. It was a pleasure speaking with them.

5 Thoughts on "Interview with Jason Roberts from the ISMTE Annual Conference"

Hi Kent! I attended the meeting for ISMTE and your talk was great! There was alot of discussion from the other editors after you left. You may have inspired the birth of some new blogs for our journals.

Terrific talk Kent! Thanks for making the trip to Baltimore to join us, and for creating such a buzz.

Thanks for the information about iPhone podcasting – have now downloaded Audioboo. Hopefully will be more useful than the iSteam app, which one of my colleagues asked me to get!

Hi Kent,

I really enjoyed your talk yesterday; I have renewed interest in blogs for our journals and now feel empowered to convince our online editor that they are a good thing. I was also very interested NEJM’s relationship with Amazon’s Kindle; that’s something I hope to explore with our journals. Thanks for all of the innovative and practical ideas to help keep our journals relevant and on the cutting edge.

Hi Kent!
I enjoyed your talk very much; it was a great way to kick off the conference. You created a tangible energy that remained high through the rest of the sessions. You’ve given us a lot to think about and a lot of information to take back to our offices.
