Mark Baker: Plug-and-Play Content
In this Adobe/STC booth interview, Mark Baker (Principal Consultant, Analecta Communications) shares new reasons why re-use with structured is so critical. "Re-use is a really important aspect of technical writing today." Structured writing is about adding a structure to your text to make it a "query-able" set of content. We must realize that people no longer read our content in a linear order. Because content is modular and must be capable of being reordered on short notice, we need "plug-and-play" content, where all links will work when components are moved.
