Can’t contain my joy that I have not one, but two (!) opportunities here in Phoenix to meet content strategists that I have admired and talked to from afar.
First: Kristina Halvorson, author of Content Strategy for the Web, will kick off the first-ever Phoenix content strategy meetup with cocktails, conversation and a casual Q-and-A. We’ve got a fledgling community, and this is a great way to get people interested and energized. The event is free, but RSVP today
Second, Phoenix is hosting the 11th-annual Information Architecture Summit, and a bunch of content strategists will be in town. Thus, it’s another great chance to meet informally and talk about that most important of business assets: content. If you’re up drinks, let me know!
P.S. If you have no idea what I mean when I say content strategy, check out the background knol on the subject. Why is it so important? Well, if you build Web sites, have a Web site or write for Web sites, and you’re sick and tired of disorganized, headache-inducing content, you need to learn about content strategy. And if you what you read strikes a nerve, join us for more.
