Dec 12, 2006: PublicSquare launches

Earlier this year I blogged about the growing trend of IAs leveraging their skills in the start-up arena. We recently saw Rashmi Sinha do wonderful things with MindCanvas and, more recently, the superlative Slideshare.net.

Now Christina Wodtke, of Information Architecture: Blueprints for the Web fame has launched PublicSquare. It's a collaborative publishing platform that's "bigger than a blog tool, smaller than a CMS." PublicSquare's features enable:

  • Writers to submit stories on the website
  • Your audience to rate and vote ideas, stories and comments
  • You to easily manage deadlines and writers
  • You to support multiple authors and an unlimited number of stories

Currently used to manage Boxes & Arrows, PublicSquare looks like a great service, especially for those managing publications with multiple authors. Congratulations to Christina, Lars Pind, Anders Pollas, and Lance Arthur on their fantastic work! (Wish my own damned UX meets Web 2.0 meets social networking service would launch already!)
