Inside the Yahoo! Style Guide

Associated Content Contributor Sabah Karimi recently had an opportunity to interview Chris Barr, Yahoo!'s Senior Editorial Director, about one of his big projects: The Yahoo! Style Guide.

This brand new book, dubbed "the ultimate sourcebook for writing, editing and creating content for the digital world," assembles the collective wisdom of more than 40 experts and influencers in the realm of online communication. It's great advice for AC Contributors, and we're looking forward to sharing it with the community in a variety of formats.
