    I believe that in a highly connected digital world, the future of content publishing lies with creating interlinked manifestations of a core concept or theme. I like to think of this as ‘multi(n) publishing’, (where 'n' stands for any number of things, e.g. aspect / channel / facet / format / genre / sided / variant / etc.), or multi-publishing for short.
