Morph's Outpost on the Digital Frontier - August 1993
On the digital frontier, out where the information superhighway runs into the jungle, pioneers stop for supplies and sustenance before moving on to blaze new trails. That's where you'll find Morph. Male, female, animate, inanimate, scout, shaman, priestess – Morph is a shapeshifter par excellence, your personal guide to the digital outback. Technical outfitter for the interactive multimedia pioneer, Morph is proud proprietor of the establishment known far and wide as Morph's Outpost on the Digital Frontier. Pioneers meet at Morph's Outpost. They share information about the obstacles and opportunities that lie ahead, pass around a jug, swap a few tall tales, and stock up on supplies before moving on to pushing the information superhighway into the jungle.
Interactive multimedia combines the excitement of Hollywood and the power of computers. As the first magazine dedicated to serving, in depth, the technical, business, and creative needs of the multimedia developer community, Morph's Outpost on the Digital Frontier brings together technical creators from the realms of computer software, digital electronics, mass communications, and the arts. Morph exists to serve multimedia professionals who create corporate, education, and entertainment applications of interactive technologies.
Morph's Outpost on the Digital Frontier provides in-depth, objective technical information about interactive multimedia tools and technologies. We explore the theories and philosophies that underlie authoring and asset manipulation tool design and application. We cover the people and the events of the multimedia trade. We offer strategic advice to help multimedia professionals become more productive and increase profits. And, we welcome newcomers ready to stretch and develop as professionals in a new trade society.
Interactive multimedia has the power to open eyes and hearts, to empower and enable, to change the way we work, learn, and play. Let's show each other what makes this technology tick. Let's help each other overcome the obstacles, break new ground, and plant the seeds that will nourish the generations of multimedia developers who will stand on our shoulders.
Graphitti captures the spirit of a place and time.
Graphitti on the walls of the digital citadel!
