More of this, please

From NewsTrust:

Today, we’re excited to announce that we are open sourcing the code forNewsTrust.net, our social news platform.

We have just published that code on Github, under the name SocialNews. It runs on the popular Ruby on Rails web framework, which is also open source.

This SocialNews code will enable developers to create their own social news sites, using our platform to help people find good journalism together. We are really happy to make our tools and methodologies available to a broader community.

This is highly encouraging behavior from a very innovative organization. I interviewed the head of NewsTrust, Fabrice Florin, on the organization’s new direction for The Atlantic a week or so ago.
