Git as a CMS
I’ve seen several instances of people using Github as a CMS/wiki. They leverage the built-in capabilities of Markdown, versioning, and pull requests to collaborate on content, rather than code.
- A list of companies that don’t do whiteboard interviews
- A list of common falsehoods held by programmers
- A list of free programming books
Another example of low-tech CMS is Karen McGrane’s blog-ish, newsletter-ish, public Google Doc in which she writes random stories, then tweets a link to, then deletes later and starts over. (Shades of txti from our last issue.)
And in case you thought that’s a little nuts, know that all the cool kids are doing it. Remember Google Wave? It lives, apparently.
