More Zinio Happenings!

In last Friday's TGIF post, I mentioned Zinio and the revolution they are bring to bear on the publishing industry. It had been a while since I checked in with them to get the latest news.

As luck would have it, I received this lovely e-mail late Friday from Zinio CEO and President, Rich Maggiotto:
