Content strategist Max Johns spoke at UX New Zealand 2013, which got him thinking about how content strategists and user experience (UX) professionals have a lot in common: Our fields attract people from all sorts of backgrounds, and require curious minds and a huge amount of empathy for our audience.
This presentation, from February 2014's Auckland Content Strategy Meetup, shows how content people are a very varied group of people with a wide range of skills...just like UX people. Traditionally one area dealt with the "consumable" internet and one with the "interactive" internet, but that division has disappeared.
These days, UX and content strategy overlap more than they don't. The next step is to adopt each other's processes and learn each other's languages.
