Publishers + Content Strategy Jeffrey MacIntyre 19 March 2009 IA Summit Memphis, TN

Preamble Who has worked as an interactive content specialist with a publishing organization? *

Preamble * A native, pre-interactive publisher! (We’re all publishers now.)

Proposed: Publishing is our home and native land. Our work reflects and mimics editorial thinking.

CS as Editorial Process Content strategy is “a repeatable system that defines the entire editorial content development process for a website development project.” Richard Sheffield

CS from IA “If information architecture is the spatial design of information, I see content strategy as the temporal side of the same coin.” Louis Rosenfeld

Practitioner-Publisher “Content strategists combine the skills of writers, editors and publishers to think in a holistic way about what users should see when they visit a site[.]” Terrell Johnson

Consider the Masthead Writers, copyeditors, art director & staff, ad sales, production, managing editor, the EIC, the publisher. Publishing is complex.

Consider Content Strategy We’re complex. We work in projects and operations. Our work crosses traditional roles in publishing and conventional ones in UX.

The CS/Publisher Affinity We both know content. We’re using similar tools and a shared language. We have a role with everyone on the masthead.

So, the Masthead Test How we (prefer to) work with publishers tells us a lot about who we are as practitioners-- and about the parameters of our field, now and tomorrow.
