Penny Press strives to produce a content management system for online news sites

Penny Press newspaper was a low cost paper in the 19th century that brought the news to the masses because it was affordable for the working class.

Penny Press is an open source content management system geared towards local online news sites.

Building an online news site is expensive. Penny Press hopes to lower the cost needed to enter the online news world. As the big newspapers companies lose more and more money, local news will be produced by fewer and fewer companies and in turn, there will be fewer voices in the press. The lower cost of entrance will help keep the diversity of those voices in tact.

Penny Press will follow standards found both in the web world and the news world. Standards such as NITF/NewsML import and export from the news world. Standards such as RSS/Atom from the web world.
