Default Bye-bye Seybold...

Reported at <http://www.printcan.com/>:

"October 18, 2005
Seybold Seminars cancelled
Seybold Seminars, the once-popular print industry seminar series south of the border, has cancelled all events for the remainder of 2005 and 2006. Speculation among U.S. industry pundits suggests that the seminars are gone for good. The Seybold conference at Print 05 in Chicago was poorly attended and general attendance at the seminars has reportedly been declining over the last several years. Seybold Seminars is owned by parent company MediaLive, which also runs The Seybold Bulletin, a weekly online report of printing headlines and The Seybold Report, an industry publication established in 1971 by Jonathon Seybold, who launched Seybold Seminars in 1981. During their heyday, the seminars thrived on educating printers on the revolutionary impact computers were making on the industry. "

Too bad, but no surprise. They've been in a death spiral for the last three or four years.

Still, I have some very fond memories of the Seybold SF conferences I attended over the years, and especially the DTPForum dinners.

So I'll raise a glass, and toast the memory of Seybolds past, and the Stale Bread Award which I was honored with "for no particular reason whatsoever" by Kass.
