Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 07, 2012
One of the most dynamic, forward-thinking business publications in recent years, The Legacy Series: Innovation & Technology, hits newsstands nationwide December 18. The highly anticipated, multi-platform magazine showcases smart technology, new innovation and the next steps for publishing, filmmaking and social media — as described in conversations with 15 of the nation’s most innovative experts.
“This publication celebrates the American ingenuity, innovation and vision that has always enabled us to lead the business world and rise above the economic highs and lows,” Charles Warner, CEO of Innovative Properties Worldwide and publisher of The Legacy Series, said. “We are presenting high-profile conversations with some of the most innovative people in business today, as well as articles that look specifically at some of our most promising work and technology.”
The Legacy Series weaves together interviews, feature stories and perspectives throughout its 128 pages. Stories include a retrospective on the life of the late Steve Jobs, whose legacy inspired the series’ premiere issue; in-depth features on the futures of social media, publishing, filmmaking, crowd funding and cloud computing; new horizons and programs in education; and discussions on tablet computing, innovative leadership, leading women in technology, and much more.
Among the visionary leaders and industry experts profiled and interviewed for The Legacy Series are:
- Mark Cuban, owner of AXS-TV, partner in Magnolia Pictures, owner of the Dallas Mavericks NBA basketball team, and co-star of the hit TV series Shark Tank;
- Beth Comstock, senior vice president of GE and the mastermind behind the popular hulu.com TV website;
- Ken Segall, bestselling author of Insanely Simple, and the creator of the “i” branding concept for Apple products;
- Jeanniey Mullen, executive vice president of Zinio, the world’s foremost digital magazine distributor;
- Chris Voss, named as one of Forbes magazine’s Top 50 Social Media Influencers;
- Berny Dohrmann, head of CEO Space International and one of the behind-the-scenes masterminds of the Chicken Soup for the Soul franchise;
- Craig Perkins, winner of the 2012 iPhone Film Fest;
- David Warthen, who developed AskJeeves.com (now Ask.com), which revolutionized search engine technology and opened it to all consumers.
“With our conversation series, which will always be a major part of our publication, we explore how new approaches to leadership, innovation and application of best business practices serve the marketplaces of today and tomorrow,” Warner said. “The leaders, developers and visionaries that we interviewed have brought great developments into their fields and industries. Their insights have created great results. That’s what people like to read today — material that they can apply directly.”
The publication revolves around the industries touched by Steve Jobs. Jobs directly influenced or revolutionized seven industries — all of which are examined in the publication. His inventions and innovations changed the face of music, telecommunications, desktop computing and publishing, and tablet computing, among others. Only two other inventors in American history made similar impacts to business, industry, and the lives of consumers: Thomas Edison and Henry Ford.
“I’m always struck by the degree to which people are interested in the story of Apple and Steve Jobs,” said Ken Segall, who headed Apple’s creative advertising campaigns in the 1990s and early 2000s. “Apple is fascinating to people in virtually every industry, because so many people own Apple products, and have followed Steve’s story over the years. Even though I may be speaking to organizations in industries that have absolutely nothing to do with technology, people are always eager to find out more about how Apple works, and how they might be able to adopt some of Apple’s principles in their own organizations. Steve truly is a historic figure.”
