I remember watching Sandra Bullocks 1995 psychological thriller, The Net, and being terrified of the Internet revolution. I had convinced myself that only government special agents should have Internet capabilities, and if the Net ever went completely public, we would all be in serious trouble.
But the Internet age has now become a social norm. Weve all learned to count on the ability to share information and experiences on the Net, in a heartbeat. The power of the Net to communicate globally is unmatched, whether you are in Mumbai checking email at an Internet kiosk or at the Magic Kingdom Business Center surfing the web while your children fly Space Mountain for the 37th time.
As we strive to improve our digital media capabilities, with the help of Scott Babcock, our trusty multimedia producer, our editors were able to get video interviews, articles and product information from the 2008 IFPAC show in Baltimore to readers almost immediately.
Through the Net we were able to deliver same-day video coverage to your virtual mailbox including:
- FDA Deputy Commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock on Quality by Design
- NIPTE Executive Director Prabir Basu on Why Industry Must Change
- DSM Pharmaceuticals Bir Gujral and C. Freeman Stanfield on PAT and QbD
- Duquesne University Professor Carl Anderson on PAT
- Malverns Chief Technology Officer Neil Lewis on chemical imaging
- NIR and Mammalian Cell Culture Growth: Perspectives from Robert Mattes
- PAT Validation and Audits: An Interview with S2Is Bruce Buchanan
- Open Standards for Data Access and Management with ABBs Thomas Buijis
You can also find web-exclusive IFPAC articles such as:
- FDAs Famulare: ICH Q-10 to Crystallize PATs Benefits
- Quality by Design in the Design Space: Examples from Novartis and Merck
- Quality by Re-Design or Reverse QbD?
- Walter Henslee, former Dow scientist and editor of JPAC on The Human Element and Process Analyzers
