We use ad-blockers as well, you know. We gotta keep those servers running though. Did you know that we publish useful books and run friendly conferences — crafted for pros like yourself? E.g. upcoming SmashingConf Barcelona, dedicated to smart front-end techniques and design patterns.
Jeff Eaton is a Digital Strategist at Lullabot, where he designs and implements large-scale web platforms for media, education, and enterprise businesses. He's also the co-author of O'Reilly Media's Using Drupal; the host of the Insert Content Here content strategy podcast; and a frequent writer and speaker at web and open source conferences. In a previous life, he worked as a freelance writer and a copy editor, jobs that he recalls fondly while building editorial tools for today's content teams.
Thanks to the skyrocketing popularity of mobile devices, a new generation of designers and CMS developers has found the religion of Structured Content. Once the domain of semantic markup purists and information architects, structured content models are at the heart of most multi-channel and multi-device Web projects.
At Lullabot, we often work with media, publishing and enterprise clients. Those businesses produce so much content and manage so many publishing channels that keeping presentation and design-specific markup out of their content is an absolute requirement. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that editors and writers are content with rigid, predictable designs for the material they publish.
