New business needs means new content needs
It’s a mere couple of months away to the Confab conference in Minneapolis – May 9-11, 2011, to be exact – where my contribution will be to talk about how good products deserve good content. With my reputation as a content strategy who bangs the drum about content standards, genre analysis, and metadata, and speaking about it in an accessible way, I guess the topic is natural fit. For a sneak preview of my take on this topic, you can read my contribution to the Confab blog: Content Access Must Evolve with Business Needs.
The support center reps who expertly flip through their oversized binders crammed full of product content supplemented by sticky notes is a fast-dying stereotype. As software takes over the job of collective corporate memory, the delivery of content becomes as important as the content quality. Because no matter how awesome your content is, no one can use it if they can’t find it.
If you haven’t thought about attending Confab, now’s the time to think about joining us. We’d love to see you there!
