What is it about?
Eirik Hafver: For almost 20 years we have written texts for the web, for almost 20 years we have failed. We have put our staff through writing courses, made style guides and participated in workshops led by content gurus. We know how to write good texts, and we have the tools to do so.
Nevertheless, we continue to go wrong.
The problem is: Even if we know a lot about writing, we are not organized to manage the web and especially content on the web.
