Being an online magazine, we at Output are of course rather keen on the internet as a communications medium: it's quick, flexible and more environmentally sensitive than some other avenues. The past week has demonstrated, as ever, that we're not alone in the graphics industry in this belief, with news that ink and media supplier Selectech is now using Twitter to spread the word about its offers, the announcement (which Output spotted first on LinkedIn) that Ipex World has had 100,000 visitors in its first six months, and a new webinar programme from software company Shuttleworth revealed.
However, as our resident Talk Print! bloggers Sophie and Laurel discussed in last week's Question of the Week about drupa, it's sometimes better to meet people face to face. We're already planning our trade show attendance for next year; let us know if you're doing the same.

"The exhibition gives the wide-format sectors the chance to spend time exploring how others make a living out of print."

Are you going to drupa to broaden your printing horizons? Or should our industry still be taking one step at a time – and concentrating on our own niche? Let's Talk Print! about your thoughts.
