Tools of Change Publishing Conference Ends

Tim O’Reilly has decided to end the seven year old Tools of Change publishing conference.

GalleyCat has covered the event for many years, and we have many great memories from the conference. AppNewser has more details:

O’Reilly explained further that the company is shifting its focus “from hosting the conversation about publishing technology to bringing our own tools to market.” This includes a collaborative writing platform code-named Atlas. The organization will continue to share thoughts on the O’Reilly Radar and on the Safari tech blog. AppNewser has covered the show for the past few years. Here is a link to the most recent show coverage.
