Context, Contents (the magazine), and CS Forum London

I’m catching up on my reading—which is hard to do as the #contentstrategy hashtag on Twitter seems to be a constantly moving stream of insight at the moment.

I came across an interesting article on context and content management on the Forbes website. While I don’t agree with everything Tom says (second guessing visitor’s motives by the device they are using isn’t as straight forward I think), I do agree context is an important part of content.

One of the most exciting pieces of news this week was the announcement of Contents—a digital magazine about content strategy and online publishing, formulated by the smarts of Erin Kissane (author of The Elements of Content Strategy), Krista Stevens (Editor-in-chief of A List Apart), Ethan Marcotte (author of Responsive Web Design), and Erik Westra (Brain Traffic and Confab extraordinaire). Needless to say, there are a whole heap of people looking forward to seeing the first issue.

Speaking of smart people, many are beginning to descend on London for the CS Forum. The list of speakers reads like a ‘who’s who’ of content strategy royalty. Unfortunately I’ll have to watch from afar, so if you are attending please remember to tweet 🙂

Finally, I love a good infographic and Richard Ingram has now completed his diagrams of the results from his content strategy survey.  Confab attendees were lucky enough to get a print of one of Richard’s diagrams—mine is framed and hanging in my office.

What content strategy delights did you find this week?
