Interview with Chip Gettinger

This week, we’re posting an interview that Scott did earlier this year with Chip Gettinger of Astoria Software. In the interview, Chip and Scott discuss XML authoring and Astoria’s content management software; component content management and how it differs from Web and document content management; and how component content management can benefit both technical communicators and the organizations with which they work.

Note that the quality of the audio isn’t the greatest. It was recorded over Skype, and there is some background noise and the occasional dropout.
