Best Open Source Social Networking CMS - Vote for Us!

Packt Publishing is hosting the 2007 Open Source CMS Awards and LifeType made it to the final in the category "Best Open Source Social Networking CMS". We have some serious competition in our group: Drupal and Wordpress. (Although I don't think Wordpress can be considered "Social Networking CMS" as it's only a single blog installation, but that's another story. ;-)

Please help us win the contest and vote for us (fill in your name and e-mail in the top right corner).

Coolest pLog implementation ever

What do you get if you link an Asterisk PBX to a pLog blog? The answer is Classcaster.org!

Even though Classcaster is not a public service (it is restricted to members of the CALI schools) we think it's really worth mentioning it here because of its potential for other applications. Users can call a certain phone number and posts are automatically published to a pLog blog via the XMLRPC interface, and there's even a demo blog for you to test.

Stern.de does pLog

Alex wrote to inform us that German media group Stern has launched a blogging service for their journalists based on pLog at Stern Blogs. Stern joins the growing group of well-known German sites that are using pLog for their blogging service such as the FDP site, Gamestar or the Axel Springer group.

Stern.de seem to be using a slightly customized version of pLog, but this is just another example of how powerful and flexible the pLog architecture is, and how blogs (and pLog!) have become a suitable choice for on-line journalism. We wish Stern success!
