Just a note of some interest.
A WordPress driven blog – Cornell.edu Redesign ( http://web.cornell.edu/redesign/blog/ ) – has made the Top 10 list for ‘Best Innovation’ at the Best Of the Blogs awards competition ( http://www.thebobs.de/bob.php?site=home ). The competition is hosted by Germany’s international broadcaster – Deutsche Welle.
Go visit the competition site, and – if you like their blog – give them your vote.
Full disclosure: I am not associated with the blog, or the competition. I did nominate them, though. I just found their blog on the web.
To me, this is one very simple use of a blog to accomplish a great feat. It involves the stakeholders of an institution in the redesign of their web portal.
And, they are using WordPress!
Edit: One thing I forgot to mention … I especially appreciate that the Cornell blog has not been ‘fancied’ up (style/theme/skin-wise), so to speak. Not that I don’t appreciate a beautiful style/skin. But, blogging is – after all – about ‘the words’, isn’t it? And WordPress makes initiation of the ‘writing’ and ‘conversation/feedback’ easier than any other.
Cornell’s blog is all about the ‘converstations’ within the blog. And, WordPress offers such ease of operation that it is a natural choice for easy and simple implementation.
