Erik Heels weighs in with some cogent observations about the value of using weblog software to manage your website (in his case, for his law firm, but the lessons apply equally well to other businesses).
In particular, Erik provides a good review of several software systems (Radio Userland, Movable Type), discusses aggregators, and lists a few tips for leveraging the platform effectively. The article is well worth reading.
Over at EmploymentBlawg, George asks why Erik doesnt review Blogger. I cant speak for Erik, but I can add my $.02 Bloggers fine for basic weblog updating, but falls far short when it comes to managing non-blog content. Eriks really talking about managing an entire web presence with the weblog software as the infrastructure. Thats possible with Radio and Movable Type, but almost impossible with Blogger.
There is no doubt in my mind that web content management systems that grow out of todays crop of blog apps (in particular, keep your eye on Movable Types creators, Six Apart) are the disruptive technology that will threaten the established WCM players (think Documentum, Interwoven, Vignette).
