Good news!  Our "A Day with Scribus" seminar initial announcement has 
yielded lots of interest!

Attendees will receive seminar materials including newly released, 
ready-to-run  versions of Scribus (v. 1.4.4) for Windows, Mac and Linux 
on a USB thumb drive.

We see the seminar as an open forum.  Not only will you learn about 
Scribus, you will gain insights from other attendees about the 
implications of this game changing technology.  We plan open discussions 
of, for example, "What if display ad building workstations were so 
inexpensive everyone could have them?" Or "For newspapers whose 
production has been centralized elsewhere, would helping advertisers use 
Scribus yield more camera ready ads?"  And "What makes Scribus uniquely 
well suited for making design and page assembly more efficient?"

There will also be lots of news from the Scribus Community to review.  
For example Scribus member Cedric notes that "a new French weekly 
newspaper called L'Axonais is now produced with Scribus and GIMP."  The 
first issue was 56 tab pages.  Cedric's adventures helping this 
newspaper come to life are great fun.

SCS news about ScrImLay, ad launching and NAA Ink Colors will also get 
priority billing.
