Verdens Gang (VG) - the biggest media group in Norway has decided to use pLog in VG Nett, the online presence of their daily newspaper. At the moment they are publishing in three blogs - Teknoisme, Spillblog and Oddleiv - about technology, video games and sports. There is an additional weblog, VG-Bloggen, where the journalists and editors can tell their opinions.
pLog was discussed and recommended as an ideal open source tool for various e-learning scenarios in the german speaking book "Open Source Werkzeuge fuer e-Trainings" (Open Source Tools for e-Trainings).
"In particular because of the ease of use, the possibility to create quick and efficient multiple weblogs and the option to create albums for files pLog asserts against all other actual open source weblog systems."
