Are We Too Easily Distracted by Shiny Objects? [B10]


We probably all subscribe to the credo “content is king”, but how does this work out in practice?

Is the temptation of playing with new toys and technologies – and the clamour of “we must have …” from on high distracting us from what might be argued to be a web managers primary purpose?

IWMW has, from its inception, stressed the importance of information management, highlighted areas in need of attention and proposed strategies. But how much progress have we really made?

This session will look at where we were and where we are now in terms of content management – consider which technical developments have helped (or hindered!) us, compare experiences and attempt to identify those areas where work still needs to be done.
