By: Steve Outing

My travel schedule prevents me from writing a traditional column through Wednesday of this week, so today, Tuesday and Wednesday I will suggest some interesting sites online to visit. I will return with a column on Thursday, 11 November 16, reporting from the Interactive Publishing conference in Zurich Switzerland.
