Do-It-Yourself Content Management

CMSWatch: "Don't do it"!

Interwoven: "Don't do it without us"!

Dave Winer says: "Get Frontier" -- it is affordable (certainly not a rip off), and scriptable.

I say do it yourself. Nobody has what you need. Nobody.

There is really only one kind of CMS Software -- one that needs to be customized. When the vendors tell you that you get a headstart with their infrastructure, they are only talking about the 10%.

I am not saying the 10% is not important. It is very important. Just that to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for 10% of what you need seems insane.
