In this exclusive interview with TheContentWrangler, Eric Severson, CTO of Flatirons Solutions explores the Darwin Information Typing Architecture and how it can help us deliver the right information, to the right people, at the right time—if only we can learn to think outside the document box. Severson is an insightful content professional who shares his views on the possibilities for DITA to help us deliver personalized, dynamic content, and he explores some of the challenges writers will face as we move toward creating more modular content. One of the biggest challenges, Severson says “is adjusting peoples mindsets from writing books to writing more granular, reusable topics.”
