First of all, I know that there are many of you out there who have been waiting the release of the next podcast. I think we underestimated how hard it was going to be to release a video every other week (Arbortext Monster Garage) and still maintain our podcasting schedule.  Well, get ready to listen: We've got several stacked up in the queue ready to go and we're starting the release schedule again with a flourish! 


The first release in the new podcast series is with a legend in the industry: Barry Schaeffer. I met Barry very early on. I always looked forward to seeing him at industry events and reading the articles he published.  Barry was always a frequent speaker and contributor on subjects related to information and content management. 


Barry is a legend. 


He was Founder and President of X.Systems.Inc., a system development and consulting firm specializing in the conception and design of text-based information systems, with industrial, legal/judicial and publishing clients among the Fortune 500, non-profit organizations and government agencies, until it’s acquisition by XyEnterprise in 2008. His work with structured information began in 1979 with SGML, and with XML at its initial publication as a standard in 1996. X.Systems was the first company to partner with Arbortext. 


Today, Barry is a Senior Analyst with the Gilbane Group and a Principal consultant with Content Life-cycle Consulting, Inc


Over the course of his career, Barry has held management and technical positions with The Bell System, Xerox, Planning Research Corporation, U. S. News and World Report, Grumman Data Systems and XyEnterprise. As an experienced consultant and systems architect, he has supported a client list that includes major industrial organizations, Federal civilian and defense agencies and state governments.  He was even the new media columnist at Newspapers and Technology magazine for a couple of years. 


And we are beyond delighted that he could help us restart the PubWright Podcast


The advice he gives is invaluable when it comes to thinking about how to roll out XML publishing systems, how to think about organizational content strategy, and full of lessons learned about both. In fact, there’s a bit of important history here: Barry was there at BNA when IBM was learning the lessons that lead IBM to invent DITA. Interesting stuff! 


Head on over to the podcast. It's available on our podcast feed and on iTunes iTunes. Hear from a long time part of the the XML/technical publications family: Barry Schaeffer.
