A week ago I watched a great TED talk about how Git(hub) is changing the world as we know it. Yes, I said world. I remember watching it and wondering how some of Clay Shirkey’s point could find its way to WordPress. We’re one week later and what do you know, Ben Balter was already busy creating just that and released a plugin today; a mix of Git and WordPress Posts. I’m really excited about this because of the possibilities it opens. From the site:
WordPress Post Forking allows users to “fork” or create an alternate version of content and in doing so, sets out to foster a more collaborative approach to WordPress content curation. This can be used, for example, to allow external users (such as visitors to your site) or internal users (such as other authors) with the ability to submit proposed revisions.
Do check out the post (and its resources) and let us know what you think. For good measure, here’s the presentation on what Git could do:
So having seen that and having looked at the plugin, are you as excited as I am?
