Web 2.0 adaptation ain't easy

According to a report by CMS Watch, vendors have a difficult time implementing Web 2.0 features in their publishing make-up.

"Web CMS vendors and their customers are really feeling their way to Web 2.0. Adding wiki, blog, and commenting facilities to a Web CMS tool does not guarantee that they will actually be used," says Theresa Regli, CMS Watch principal.

She says that these technologies can be time consuming even if they have been implemented correctly. She adds that the best solution depends on the type of content that needs to be managed.

Web Content 2007 Symposium

The Web Content Symposium will be taking place in Chicago this year, says Duo Consulting.

The conference provides three main tracks: content design and access, content development and management and emerging tools and technologies. Each track will feature speakers from the industry, including: Seth Earley, who will be discussing Folksonomy & Taxonomy, Duo Consulting's Yvonne Doll on content usability and Seth Gottlieb, who recently launched an independent strategic consulting practice.

Delegates will also be able to participate in hands-on workshops and discuss the featured case studies.
