In National Geographic Interactive

I am very pleased to say that one of my images appears in National Geographic's October 2010 Interactive Edition. I took this image on my trip to Bosque del Apache in New Mexico at the end of last year, hopefully I can do even better this year.

Here is the image that appears:

On a different note, I have to say I am very pleased with what National Geographic is doing with their Interactive Edition. By partnering with Zinio, the interactive edition is available for a variety of devices including reading with a web browser.

A lot of digital editions of magazines are merely just a scan (or a series of images) of the print magazine. As the tools and technology matures more magazines are better able to take advantage of the interactivity of digital.

The October issue of National Geographic starts to take some of these steps. There are slideshows, interactive panoramas and video clips sprinkled through out the issue. This is really great stuff and I'm pretty sure this is the future of periodicals. Best of all, I think Adobe is in a good spot to help empower these content creators.
