    Content is Queen’s mission is to cover the new dawn of content online. Its author,
    Anna Murray, describes the project:

    Back in the late ‘90s, people said, “On the web, content is king.” Soon, the
    predictions went, there would be a great marketplace of content and the control of
    content would be democratized. Users would decide what content was published
    and consumed– not big studios or media companies.

    Then came the dot-com nuclear winter. A lot of sites failed, and content sites
    seemed anything but kingly. People laughed at the idea of content sites making
    money.

    No one’s laughing any longer. And content is surely back. Like the queen in
    chess, she has every move open to her. So we have coined a new term for this
    new era. Today, Content is Queen. And this blog is devoted to covering this new
    day. Our coverage areas include…

    • Web 2.0 and community
    • Content based site ventures
    • Digital publishing
    • New platforms (iPods, eBooks, etc.)

    Since its creation, the CIQ blog has created a stir, resulting in radio interviews,
    article requests, and speaking engagements for its author. The blog is updated at
    least bi-weekly with a hiatus for the summer months.
