The goal was to challenge one another with fresh perspectives for the purpose of growth. Silber published an account of the day on Folio where he draws parallels between media advances and recent enhancements to the U.S. Tennis Center’s Arthur Ashe Stadium. In the process he walks through the history and evolution of SRDS, discussing the shift from print directories to an online database and beyond. Readers might also notice a few hints about what SRDS has in store for publishers in the future.Overall, this social and professional outing served as a great learning experience for everyone. And there was some great tennis on display as well.
