Upcoming interviews at the Intelligent Content Conference
Several years ago, at the STC Summit in Dallas, I took my video camera along and recorded about a dozen different interviews with presenters and other interesting people. Together, the videos had a total of 7,304 views. (You can see the full list of videos here.)
This year, I'm going to be interviewing people at the Intelligent Content Conference in San Jose, California, February 26-28.
The Intelligent Content Conference focuses on creating content that is both structured and semantic -- hence intelligent. Here's a more detailed description of intelligent content from the Intelligent Content Conference site:
Simply put, ‘intelligent content' is content which is not limited to one purpose, technology or output. It's content that is structurally rich and semantically aware, and is therefore discoverable, reusable, reconfigurable and adaptable. It's content that helps you and your customers get the job done. It's content that works for you and it's limited only by your imagination.
There are a lot of smart people presenting at this conference. I didn't want to miss an opportunity -- especially at a conference practically in my backyard -- to interact with some of them through my favorite Q&A interview format.
However, rather than choosing people whom I personally find interesting (or who happen to be accessible to me during the conference), this year I'm going to let you choose who you want me to interview.
The following poll lists all the presenters. Take a minute and vote for about 10 people you want to me to interview. If the names are unfamiliar, browse the conference schedule to get a better feel for what topics they're presenting on.
Also, if you wouldn't mind, in the comments on this post, let me know if you prefer audio or video as a format.
