What's the first thing you think of when I say, "future print?"

We’re about to get started with another #tweetjam at 11:00 AM ET today. The hashtag to use on Twitter: #futureprint. I’m intrigued by the combination of those two words: future + print.  Some may argue the combination of those terms is contradictory, indicating “print is not the future.” Others would emphatically say “print = future” and print is a big part of the future of the communication but it will change. What are your first thoughts when you hear “futureprint?”
Let’s play word association. I’m going to list a series of words/phrases, let us know the first word that “pops in your head” by commenting below. I’ll share my thoughts in a comment as well.

Hopefully, you can join our discussion during for today’s #tweetjam but regardless, please share your word association below.

      Duane, thanks for your comment. I agree with all your word associations. Personalization = Data is very true. Having in-depth data is critical to really harnessing the power of personalization. Without good data….personalization is ineffective.
