Interwoven’s WCM Book
One of the early books on CMS was Web Content Management: A Collaborative Approach by the founder of Interwoven back in 2001. It really filled a niche back in the day, when there was nothing else. A friend who worked for Interwoven back then said, “We used to just toss it on the table and the system sold itself…” (if only my book had the same effect).
I actually read the book last year, just for nostalgia, and it’s an interesting look back to where we came from. As the subtitle would suggest, the book is largely about data structures and processes to allow more than one editor to work on file-based resources at the same time – this was apparently The Big Problem back in 2000.
Fascinating how far we’ve come.
