Bill Swallow:          Welcome to the Content Strategy Experts Podcast, brought to you by Scriptorium. Since 1997, Scriptorium has helped companies manage, structure, organize, and distribute content in an efficient way. Hello, I’m Bill Swallow. For episode 39, we thought we’d try something a little different. We just returned home from LavaCon, and while there, we spoke to attendees and vendors about trends, challenges, and take-aways from the conference. We hope you enjoy this short collection of brief interviews. You may notice that the recording’s a bit noisier than usual, after all, we were at a very busy conference in New Orleans, on Bourbon Street.

Conferences Webinar

Free the webcast!

In addition to our November event on localization, we are adding another webcast in December. I’ll be presenting Strategies for coping with user-generated content on December 8 at 11 a.m. Eastern time via GoToWebinar. This event is free but registration is required.

Here’s the description:

The rise of Web 2.0 technology provides a platform for user-generated content. Publishing is no longer restricted to a few technical writers—any user can now contribute information. But the information coming from users tends to be highly specific.

The two types of information can coexist and improve the overall user experience. User-generated content also offers an opportunity for technical writers to participate as “curators”—by evaluating and organizing the information provided by end users.

Remember, there’s no charge to attend, but you do need to register.

Date: December 8, 2009
Time: 11 a.m. Eastern
Topic: Strategies for coping with user-generated content

PS Depending on the response to this event, we are going to consider additional free events.
