Dot-com marks 25th anniversary with DTP and more!

Desktop Publishing (DTP), with its subsequent revolutionary effects on print communication, turns twenty-five in two-thousand-and-ten (DTP Turns 20). Markzware develops FlightCheck, the preflight solution for printing, plus several other desktop publishing solutions. Markzware saw lots of DTP anniversaries this year.

Last week, we got reminded of InDesign‘s presence on our computers for 10 years! Before this, we saw that Adobe Photoshop has been with us 20 years. Since FlightCheck, the preflighting software from Markzware, is compatible with several desktop publishing formats, including Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, these milestones did not go unnoticed:

Dot-com marks 25th anniversary

(CNN) “It was 25 years ago – March 15, 1985 – that the first dot-com domain name – Symbolics.com – appeared on the Internet, ushering in the commercial age of the World Wide Web.”

It is also the 10th anniversary of the dot-com bubble bursting. There is a lot of convergence this year, which is very interesting. (Let’s call that content convergence.) What is wild, is the fact that ALL of these DTP products, services or events are inter-connected; Markzware products (like FlightCheck) support desktop publishing, InDesign, Photoshop, and more.

Wow, what a year! There is at least one other anniversary this year… any guess which product that is for? Also, remember to use InDesign-compatible products, like FlightCheck, for print quality of output, available at Markzware dot-com.
