I’ve been playing around with content management systems for the past couple of months: Joomla, Typo3, Drupal, and more homegrown solutions. It seems that they’re all pretty good, but I think there’s a huge market opportunity for someone to develop the Typepad or Backpack of content management systems. By that I mean a CMS system that is:
- Free or cheap
- Ready to go in five minutes after signup
- Looks great
- Easy to use
- Web 2.0 look and feel
So far I haven’t found anything like this. Some try but they don’t quite get there. Maybe somebody needs to read Getting Real and start filling this hole.
