Seed Magazine Community

Last summer I was in talks with Seed Magazine about building an online community site for their magazine. The magazine, if you’re not familiar with it, is an interesting mix of science and culture. Their mission is “to help nurture a science-savvy global citizenry by increasing public interest in science and public understanding of science.”

Today, they took the password off their beta version of the site, designed to support the print magazine and nurture online community. It’s set to officially launch November 21. I’m especially intrigued by the amount of MovableType wrangling they appear to have done. This just shows that MT is not just a blogging tool but can also successfully be used as a CMS. The forums part of is running on top of Vanilla, an up-and-coming forums package that is gaining a lot of momentum.
