Aug 26, 1999, 01:00 ET from Blue Sky Software Corp.

    BOSTON, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Sky(R) Software Corporation CEO,
 Jorgen Lien, is a featured keynote speaker at the 1999 Help Technology
 Conference which begins in Boston today, and continues through August 28.  The
 Help Technology Conference is designed to assist Help authors, technical
 writers and software developers who need to create Help systems,
 documentation, and online tutorials, for software applications.  Incorporating
 these types of user assistance into an application improves its usability and
 customer satisfaction, increases productivity and ultimately reduces technical
 support and Help desk costs.  The Help Technology Conference is produced by
 WinWriters and SOLUTIONS, two leading providers of training and educational
 services in the technical writing industry.
     This year's conference commences with a keynote session featuring Jorgen
 Lien, CEO of Blue Sky Software, along with three other industry insiders. The
 keynote theme is "Piecing together the Online Help Puzzle," and will look at
 the future of Help authoring from several different perspectives.  Mr. Lien
 will unveil a new concept he calls "The Internet Generation of Help."  He will
 explore the possibilities presented by combining the best of existing Internet
 technologies into an Internet Help portal that can be accessed from within
 applications.  This idea represents a quantum leap in Help authoring,
 harnessing the power of the Internet to supplement a Help system's content and
 provide users with free access to a whole world of knowledge and support
 whenever they need it.
     This keynote session kicks off several information-packed days at the Help
 Technology Conference with over 40 technical sessions covering information
 design, Help formats, tool comparisons, and more.  Blue Sky Software is an
 official sponsor of this year's Help Technology Conference, and will premier
 its upcoming RoboHELP Office 2000 Help authoring suite at the event.
