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.
