Independent velger WordPress

Via Fredrik Johnsen oppdaget jeg nylig at den britiske avisen Independent går fra LiveJournal til WordPress for sine blogger. Det gis noen interessante begrunnelser for valget.

Digital media editor Jack Riley sier følgende til Journalism.co.uk:

The blogs are built with a standard WordPress system, incorporating our Disqus comments. We are demonstrating that globally standard programs can free mainstream journalism from the complex bespoke set-ups of the past. WordPress is infinitely more customisable, which means that we can adapt it all as we go along. By bringing it all in-house it also means our development and editorial teams can work closely on getting the features that readers and bloggers want live as quickly as possible.
