Introduction and Background
Ever since I wrote the article Anatomy of a Blogging Engine, we've received many requests for downloading of the software. However, since I wrote the engine to suit my personal needs, and due to its tight integration with our CMS, it was not possible to license it to the public. Then in year 2002, a company thought that they could use blogs on their intranet for knowledge percolation and status management, and used our engine with slight modifications. Apparently it was very popular within the organization, and opened my eyes to a larger need for blogging software tools designed for use in corporate intranets, and SimplyBlog was born.
There are several weblog creating software and tools available today (a list is provided at the bottom), and here is how SimplyBlog is different from others.
Most importantly, the SimplyBlog server stores data on your server (not on your desktop, not on our server, but your server). I feel that this is an important requirement for security, privacy, and other competitive reasons.
Equally important is that SimplyBlog server runs on Microsoft powered technologies. There is no need to install Unix, or the myriad of software libraries necessary to run Open Sourced blogging software available today (Feb 2003).
