Are you Hackable? Google Will Tell You

Yes, Google’s got your back. But only (for now) if you’re a WordPress fanatic. A new security feature from Google Webmaster Tools is in the works.

An interesting twist on this story is how Movable Type has been taking advantage of WordPress vulnerabilities, even before the Gee announced this new security addition to Webmaster Tools. There’s no better time to launch an assault other than when the enemy is recovering from a wound.  MT even goes on to quote the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to prove that its better than WP. Didn’t know DHS does blogging security nowadays, but I guess they watch it all.

The funny thing is that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and a handful of other U.S. government agencies appear to be using WordPress as the blogging platform of choice, as reported by several sources. Ironic, huh?

I am not saying that WP is perfect (even though, I use it myself for this very blog). The baby was down just this morning die to the denial-of-service attacks.

Web CMS Made Zimple

Yet another Web CMS vendor is attempting to position its product as the easiest ever Web CMS on Earth.  Coming from Estonia (and following Edicy’s suit), Zimplit is a new open source mini CMS that is made for normal people, not for IT gurus.”

The “simple CMS” trend continues. I wrote before about micro CMS Edicy, the dumbed-down mini CMS Bizyweb and the newest trend of blogging tools going the CMS route.

Content management terminology changes with time. The times of the Micro CMS may soon be gone, as now it appears it is the era of the “simple CMS,” — at least as positioned by Bizy, Inc. They have announced the distribution of their “simple CMS” product Bizyweb. Were they joking?

Blurring the Lines Between Blogging and CMS

I couldn’t help but notice the recent trend among blogging software products. Many of them are starting to look and act like web content management tools. Is it the seemingly inevitable merger with the Web CMS market, or the progression into the seemingly inevitable micro CMS arena?

Many blogging platforms now offer CMS-like features, including workflow, versioning, templating, asset management, etc. Blurring the lines between blogging and CMS: good or bad?
