At Juniper, our model in a true topic-based publishing paradigm is to have a single rendition of the topic on the web, thereby giving it a fixed URL. All information products (e.g., books) on the web should point to the same instance of the topic rather than republishing it as part of its delivery. We demonstrate and brainstorm the value proposition of such an approach.

  • We've used xml to move to more semantic tagging.
  • We've adopted topics to do modular writing.
  • We've embraced DITA to lead us to do topic-based authoring.
  • And we'd like to demonstrate Juniper's model to do topic-based publishing!
