Online Publishing: Write Once, Post Anywhere - The Traits and Characteristics of The New CMS | Web Publishing Tools | Scoop.it
Once upon time, back in the years before 2010, the CMS was an instrumento to create, organize, manage and publish content on a specific web property, website or blog. This classic CMS was characterized by its ability to: support
Robin Good's insight:

The new CMS is the profile of an emerging new type of content management systems that is not bound anymore to a specific web site and which acts as a hub to first gather, aggregate and filter relevant content, and then to create, edit and format it for scheduled publishing across multiple devices and types of output (email, RSS, ebook, social media, web site, blog, etc.).

Great examples of this new type of CMS are at one end of the continuum tools like Shareist, OpenTopic and B2BContentEngine and at the other simpler ones like Kurasie, Hootsuite

Here is my take on which other the key defining characteristics of this new breed of online publishing tools.

Make All of Your Website Content Editable In-line with Snaplive

Robin Good's insight:

Snaplive is an up and coming free, open-source CMS which allows any publisher to edit the contents of its web site directly on the page, without needing to log in to a backend system.

Snaplive works perfectly with WordPress and with the existing theme you are using and not only provides editing functions but it also allows you to add / create new content sections very easily.

"Virtually ANY existing website or theme can become a Snaplive-powered editable website in a matter of minutes.

All you need to do is add an HTML5 attribute to the div that will contain editable content."

My comment: I haven't tried Snaplive but the video is quite self-explanatory. While not the first system that attempts to provide in-line, on-the-page content editing and creation, the fact that that is free and open-source, that it can work with most any existing web sites and with any WordPress theme makes it very interesting for many a web publisher. If installing and configuring is as easy as it is promised, then this could be a godsend both for many website designers as well as for their clients. 

My compliments to Niccolò Broggi for designing such a cool, elegant and useful tool. 

Currently in private alpha.
