Talking content strategy with Captain IA.

by Kristina Halvorson on April 8th, 2009

It's not every day a person gets interviewed by Lou Rosenfeld.

You know. The guy who helped create the profession of information architecture.

Perhaps you even have a copy of Lou's book, Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, sitting on your shelf, right within arm's reach. If you don't, you should. Maybe even two copies.

As a longtime fan of Lou's work, I was honored to help "open his eyes" to content strategy (his words, not mine).

An excerpt from our interview:

Lou: Kristina, tell me how you came to practice content strategy.

Kristina: Lou, OMG, you so totally rock. Seriously? You ROCK. Will you sign my copy of the polar bear book?

Lou: Uh.

Kristina: Tell me something. Are you a big IA or a little IA?

Lou: Could we focus, here?

(Hm. Upon review, I think he actually took that part out …)

    Great interview. The concept of developing content strategy for an open, user-generated community is of particular interest. I loved that you provided oodles of links to examples.

    Thanks for the interview link! I’m so intrigued and excited by all of this, and now I’m compelled to look at how to break into this field. I think this could be something I’d dig.
