Glide Publishing Platform, Glide CMS, Glide Go, and Glide Nexa are a suite of products which help publishers and media bring audiences and content together.

AI and Publishing Special Report
A host of industry experts have given their thoughts on what the surge of AI writing tools and assistants could mean for publishers, in a special report compiled by Media Makers Meet and Di5Rupt. Our own Rich Fairbairn chips in with foresight on business risk, magnifying the human factor, and those who might proffer expensive AI for everything - some of which you might even need. None of which, he insists robotically, was written by ChatGPT or its ilk.
