Adobe president and CEO Bruce Chizen is slated to give the keynote address at next month’s Seybold Seminars in Boston, Mass. Seybold Seminars are bi-coastal conference and trade show events that take place in San Francisco and Boston.
Chizen’s background may be familiar to many Mac users. Prior to his tenure at Adobe, he was a senior founding manager at Apple software subsidiary Claris Corp., eventually becoming vice president of sales and worldwide marketing, the moving on to become vice president and general manager of Claris Clear Choice. Prior to Chizen’s involvement in Claris, he worked for several years at Microsoft.
Chizen’s keynote is expected to focus on “Network Publishing,” the “third wave” of publishing technology. Chizen will explain how content produced using Adobe software products can be meta-tagged for management, distribution and display, thus streamlining the entire production and workflow process. Eventually, says Chizen, content will be created once, and delivered to various media — Web pages, printers, cell phones, handheld devices, PCs and Internet appliances.
