PC Magazine's Bill Machrone has published a great new column entitled I Blog/I Do Not Blog. In it, Bill examines how blog tools in general, and Movable Type in particular, can function as extremely powerful and flexible content management systems, without all the expense and overhead of traditional CMS applications. A good overview of the potential:
If you have a newsletter, a club or organization site, or an online publication for a niche audience, though, blog software is just about perfect. That's what I needed for a site I wanted to build: something with built-in reader commentary, RSS syndication, template-based article entry, and the ability to make style changes without having to find and replace across every HTML page.
It's a great introduction for the PC Magazine audience to the potential of blog tools, and we'd love to see more discussion of the future of the creative things that can be done using Movable Type as a starting point.
