I just added this to the list of Governments Using Open Source CMS (content management systems), but I wanted to hit a quick post because of the importance. I recently started tracking the use of open source content management systems by governments.
Army Live, the Official Blog of the United States Army, launched in April and uses WordPress. The site has actually been up since April 7th, 2009 – here is the welcome post from the Army’s Chief of Public Affairs. The WordPress Publisher Blog has coverage here.
I think this is pretty neat, especially looking through the posts. I think more and more, folks (and governments) are learning that WordPress (and other open source CMSes) are easy to use and cost little to deploy.
