Publicsquare launch

My buddy Lars Pind has launched his social web editing system, Publicsquare.

In short (as far as I know), it is a community-driven CMS that makes collaborative blogs and webzines easier to handle. Through various rating and voting functionalities your webzine automatically sifts and publishes posts and stories, freeing the authors to concentrate on the actual content.

I have no experience with it - but I talked to Lars a couple of weeks ago and it sounds intriguing. It's a social networking offspring but it's narrowed down and focused towards webzine editors. Looking forward to experimenting with this - if I only had a purpose...hm...

Hi Rasmus

Thanks for the write-up.

Publishing isn't automatic, but what we're trying to do is make the lives of publishers and editors easier. How? By helping them manage the list of incoming ideas easier than doing it my email. By letting their readers tell them what they care about. By having collaboration tools built-in to make the colloboration on an article go smoothly.

But thanks, I hope you'll take a look, and let me know if there's anything we can do better.
