Post Forking

Introducing Post Forking for WordPress « Post Forking.

A lot of people have been talking about this already this morning, so I’ll just throw a very quick comment into the mix: This looks like it could be one of the very rare plugins that will completely change how I build and use WordPress.

There are a lot of plugins that are basically “nice-to-haves” that provide a little bit extra, and a somewhat smaller number that provide a chunk of functionality I need that isn’t and should never be in core — if I need a calendar or a shopping cart for a particular project, I go out and find the one that best fits that project’s requirements. But it’s much more rare to find one that changes how you interact with the system itself. WordPress has been a great publishing system for a long time now; I’d love for this to be the first step toward an equally great collaboration system.
