Le monde a very well known and global French newspaper is moving it's blog engine to WordPress. You can already read about this in tons of places:
So I wont extend too much on the huge success this suposes to WordPress and open source.
What I find most interesting is the current newspapers' tendency to open up and become more "interactive". What's actually surprising is how long it took them to do so.
Mass media has a pretty interesting vice, they love the sound of their own voice; but are not too fond about listening to others. Something quite ironic if you ask me, since they are supposed to be the "reflection of reality".
I wonder how long it will take until we start hearing about censorship of some kind.
