Content Types

SisyphusHow many different content types are there? That’s a good question. It depend what you mean by content. Most people could name five: text, images, video, sound and, er, others …

If only it were that simple. So far I’ve identified 41 distinct content types and I keep finding more all the time. To list all 41 types here and now would be a very long and boring job and make very long and boring reading.

However, over the coming weeks I plan to get all of them detailed here, plus how to get them, how they work, how they perform and how relevant they are. And because the list keeps growing, I reckon it will be a very long time before that particular job is complete.

Oops. There’s another one I’ve just found. Make that 42!
