In 2009, representatives from the U.S. Air Force asked Lumin Publishing to assist them in the redesign and ongoing management of the Department of Defense peer-reviewed publication, CrossTalk, The Journal of Defense Software Engineering. Along with the redesign, the DoD also sought alternatives to the distribution of their publication, which was only printed and mailed at that time.

Together, the U.S. Air Force and Lumin Publishing, determined that a website housing CrossTalk would be the best avenue to distribute their publication. CrossTalk needed to be accessible on multiple mobile devices (phone and tablet), and available via the Internet with economic limitations considered. Currently, through www.crosstalkonline.org, there is a mobile, digital flipbook and PDF version of the magazine available. Readers can also sign up through email to know when the most recent issue is available, and subscribe to CrossTalk’s RSS Feed.
