In consulting projects at Forum One, we often work with clients in defining the twenty or so “content types” present on their websites (press releases, research reports, video, photos, blog posts, events, etc.). Each content type is managed differentially by the content management system (CMS), and in many case also ported to third party services (documents to Scribd, videos to YouTube, etc.)
Good Ideas is a web database of good ideas. But is there such a thing as a content type “good idea”?
Interestingly, feedback I’ve received to date is very split. Many people instantly say “of course” and easily contribute ideas. Other very savvy people say “sorry, not working for me”.
So the question remains: is “good idea” a content type? Will it ever be identified in a CMS or XML markup? What do you think?
