Amidst Confusion, the Times Finds a Way to Scoop

The Times did an interesting piece on their CMS, Scoop, yesterday.

It’s platform-agnostic. To me this is absolutely critical when you are providing content to a desktop-ish Web version, along with other apps and who knows what else in the future. There should be a simple way to provide a complete version of a piece and shave off those bits that are not needed for other uses. Seems like they’re getting there.

It also allows inline changes and comments, Word-style. This is one area where I think Word almost serves some credit for providing what its users want, as does the Times (here’s hoping it is not as crash as Word when it deals with a lot of edits.
