Tobias Jordans finally finished his diploma thesis: ScoutPress. It’s a system based on weblog software (WordPress) that allows foundations and fragmented organisations to effectively communicate and organize the scattered and distributed information. Tobias used the German Scout Association (DPSG) as a live example (therefore the project name) but it is in no way limited to this interest group. He really did go beyond setting up a weblog system and remain waiting what emerges. Her identified driving factors and success stories and thus designed a publishing practice that meets the need of the individuals throughout the organisation. In this sense his approach is a model for any kind of large-scale weblog utilization.

The system is in use and will officially launched in September 2006. Tobias developed some Plug-Ins that make WordPress even easier to use for not-so-blogging-savvy users.
