Bangor Daily News develops innovative publishing workflow.
At the speakers dinner at WordCampNYC this past fall I had the pleasure of dining with William Davis, a young journalist/technologist who is the online editor of the Bangor Daily News
. He was telling me about the BDN's use of WordPress. Well now he has consolidated the whole paper into WordPress and developed a really innovative workflow combining Google Docs, WordPress, and InDesign for the print version. This site
has a video of William discussing the process. Definitely one of the most interesting publishing workflows I have come across. It is also a good example of what an organization can do when they put their faith into new ideas.
A bonus to this development decision is that William announced on Twitter that they have been able to lower their production costs so much that they can now add more staff.
