Stampy is a new, iPad-based web publishing platform, which allows to create simple and professionaly-looking multi-page web publications with maximum ease.

A Stamp is the unit of content you create on Stampsy and it is equivalent to a "page" or "screen". A Stamp can have up to 10 pages.

Embedded design intelligence: Inside a stamp you can freely place text and images leveraging an integrated background grid which helps you create always well-balanced designs. You can also change font style, colors, and the number of columns used in the page layout.

Fonts come in carefully selected pairs and in a range of sizes to make Stamps look "professional" no matter what you do with them.

Final "stamps" are published directly to the web, and can be immediately shared on Twitter and Facebook.

Ideal for art galleries, profiles, image portfolios and other visual-based short showcases.

Free to use.

The Top 10 tech trends for 2012

The Top 10 tech trends for 2012 | HigherEd Technology 2013 | Scoop.it

This piece is by Pete Cashmore for CNN online.


From the continuing rise of tablet devices to the daily-deals craze and the return of the Internet IPO, 2011 has been a transformative year for technology.

Here's what caught my attention:

Touch Computing

New input methods will be the dominant trend of 2012. Tablet computers such as the iPad might seem like a nice alternative to desktop and laptop computers, but I believe they're more than that:

**They're replacements.

** the mouse will be superseded by touchscreens.

**The signs are obvious: Windows 8 and Mac OS X Lion, the latest desktop operating systems, borrow heavy from their mobile counterparts. These new interfaces essentially impose a touchscreen-inspired interface over the traditional desktop environment.

**Over time, this half-step will become a whole one, and mobile operating systems will dominate.

****The transition won't be complete by the end of 2012, but we'll be much further down the path, and using computer mice much less often.

**Here's the takeway to get you thinking about how your product or service fits into the bigger picture.

In short, 2012 is all about new ways to interact with our devices through touch and voice control, new lightweight ways to share content, a revolution in mobile payments and a plethora of rich Web applications -- not to mention the hundreds of new innovations that we've yet to dream up. I can't wait.
