I may spend my entire day staring at a computer screen, but when I'm not at work, I'm an avid magazine reader. Because of that, I've become increasingly interested in how the magazine industry is responding to the changes in media consumption and content delivery.
According to the folks at Bonnier:
The concept uses the power of digital media to create a rich and meaningful experience, while maintaining the relaxed and curated features of printed magazines. It has been designed for a world in which interactivity, abundant information and unlimited options could be perceived as intrusive and overwhelming.
The Bank publishes quite a few documents that are like magazines every year, publications that are rich in imagery and charts as well as text-based content. I know the Office of the Publisher has been doing some great work with web widgets and e-book formats — should exploring tablet experiences for Bank publications be a new priority?
With rumors of an Apple Tablet surfacing recently, and a slew of new tablets entering the market, it's clear that user experiences for tablet computing (and more importantly, the consumption of content on tablet interfaces) have become increasingly important.
What does that mean for the World Bank and its content?
